those are frikkin sweet but where did you find the awesome mold? i cannot seem to find a mold for shot glasses and i wanted to make some for a friend;s birthday coming up

Don't know if it's ok to pour hot candy into, but there are molds for ice shot glasses here:  http://www.perpetualkid.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=1326

Yep those are the ones.  There are other ice shot molds out there, but THESE ones are SILICONE which can take the heat of hot liquid sugar - the others I have seen are plastic and will be a horrible, burning, melty-plastic mess waiting to happen.

I think I have also seen them on Amazon too in the past.  I bought these ones from a favourite kitchen store in Toronto.

i could be wrong but you can try to get rid of the bubbles the way you do it to resin, by applying heat with a torch. just slightly warming the surface.  Huh

awesome idea, but i gotta ask, how do you not get your hands sticky holding them?

I'll live with the bubbles - I don't want to burn the sugar!

Sticky is a problem I am finding out.  It's pretty high humidity here, so they definitely get sticky.  So what I am going to do is make clear cellophane sleeves for them so that people can hold them without making too much of a mess.  They do make a cute novelty item though.

Tried them today with the gummi bears - gummi bears melt, even stale hard ones :C
But they are a cool way of adding colour!

I bet almost any hard candy would work well (as floaters). I was going to suggest something like Runts, but with all the color on the outside, I suspect the colors would bleed, and you'd have little white fruit shapes.  Smiley

could you dust the outside with cnofectioners sugar to keep the sticky at bay? it would dull the colour etc on the outside but wouldn't change the inside at all.

I thought about a fine dusting of cornstarch - like coating a marshmallow - that may work too.  I was afraid powdered sugar would just get sticky too.

I think you should make some with a lollipop stick coming out of the bottom. You wouldn't be able to put them down, but who needs to put a shot of alcohol or a lollipop down. Anyhow, with sticks you wouldn't get sticky fingers.

That is a pretty cool idea!  I think I will do that next time, thanks!  Anyone who doesn't want the stick, can always break it off before using it!

The stick sounds great, but it would make it hard to fill up the glasses ahead of time.  If you're not planning on doing that, of course, it's a brilliant idea (or you could just get a bunch of styrofoam, and stick the sticks into it while you fill the cups.)  Smiley
