Using a disposable plastic decorating bag fill withone color candy meltds. Do not fill completly full.

Fill the bags with the candy melts.

 

Microwave bag on defrost level for ten second intervals.  Afterevery ten seconds check to see if the candy has melted by squishing it.

Once the candy is all melted remove bag from the microwave. Push all the candy down the bag to the tip.

 Push the melted candy down to the bottom of the bag.

Using  a pair of scissors cut a small section off of the tip of the bag. 

 Cut off the tip of the bag.

Using the bag squeeze the candy into the mold where you want that particular color.

Use the bag to squeeze the candy into the mold.

Wait until this color has become hard. Then add your next color.

Add your next color to the mold.

Continue adding all of the colors you want in this manner. 

 

If you are using a lolipop mold be sure to add the sticks into the candy before it hardens.  

After filling all the molds place the tray of molds in the fridge until all the candy has hardened. Remove the candy mold from the fridge when the candy has become hard. Twist the tray to pop out the candy.  

Twist the mold to release the candy.

When the candy has been released you may notice that it has an edge. This can be easily removed using a spatula or knife.
