SUGAR RIM SUPPLIES:
- Parchment Paper
- Karo Syrup
Individual Sprinkles In Rainbow Colors:
- Primary Color Sprinkles
- Orange Sprinkles
- Purple Sprinkles
- Icing Bottle
- Green Candy Melts (not pictured)
How to rim a glass with sugar:
First, trace the top of the glass onto the parchment paper. Carefully make small piles using the colored sugars, in the order of the rainbow, around the penciled circle.
Pour a small amount of the Karo Syrup into the bottom of a shallow plate.
Make sure the glass can lay flat on the plate so that the syrup rims the glass evenly.
Dip the glass into the sugar, giving it a little wiggle. I also used my finger to push the sugar up the side of the glass to help it stick to the syrup. Wow – a rainbow-rimmed glass!
How To Make Chocolate Shamrocks:
To give my drink the “Luck of the Irish” look, I made these small Chocolate Candy Shamrocks! These look harder to make than they are. I melted the candy melts in the microwave then scooped the chocolate into a plastic squeeze bottle.
For more on this technique, see this previous post on how to drizzle chocolate.
I actually drew a clover on the parchment paper for my first one but realized they turned out better if I just freestyled them. Think, four small hearts, that come together as you make them…split the stem at the end.
They start to harden up on their own, but I did pop them in the freezer for about five minutes to firm them up. I added a little bit of the soft chocolate in the crook of the stem to “glue” them to the rim! Don’t use glue…haha…just warm chocolate! Love how they turned out!
