National Jelly Bean Day Clusters On a Stick

Happy National Jelly Bean Day (on Wednesday)!

These happy little jelly beans pops just might brighten up your day if you happen to live in the rain soaked zone of the U.S. as I do...even though I do love the rain!

Last week as I was "sugar thinking", these jelly bean clusters just popped into my head. As usual, when I think I've invented something new, I always google it. It just so happens that I am not the first one to think of these. I found these sweet clusters here!

The flavor possibilities are endless. Especially if you use Jelly Belly jelly beans as I the fact that there are so many candy melts flavors these days.

Check out my last post if you wanna make my S'mores Clusters Pops! we go! 

These are super high on my list of fun and simple treats to make with the grand-kiddos!
Whenever I come across a new flavor of candy melts, I snap them up.

The green, orange and color burst melts are all vanilla flavored. But keep your eyes open for new and seasonal flavors for more fun jelly bean clusters flavors combos!

The peanut butter melts with the strawberry jam beans got top marks!

The chocolate covered pineapple pops were inspired by some delicious candies I brought home from a trip to Kauai and the peanut butter and banana are a nod to Elvis!
I used 10 melts and 8 jelly beans for each pop.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Melt the candy melts in the microwave at 30 second intervals stirring each time. Stir in the jelly beans and spoon the candy mixture over the top of a lollipop stick. Let set.

I thought the color burst melts and blue/pink jelly beans would make a perfect treat pop for a gender reveal party. I think I would maybe use a couple more melts just to make sure the color of the jelly beans are completely covered.
Oh so pretty!
Happy National Jelly Bean Day!
