It's also for some reason blocking a name!!! WTH!? Isomalt is sold on sugar craft's website, and they have information there on the topic.

Yes, I used isomalt. I'm going to attempt it one more time. I will put them on at the last minute. Maybe next time I will try the jolly ranchers. Great idea.
I can't thank you enough for being so hellpful!!

Okay, kello, please PM me your real email address. . . I think I can now see why so many people are leaving CC. It keeps blocking names of things that I don't even see as 'competition' for CC. I don't get it. :/

Okay, kello, I did the Jolly Rancher experiment tonight, just out of curiosity! It worked SO much better than trying from scratch.

I just put two candies in a small ramekin and microwaved until melted. I used one of those colored plastic fruit skewers (with the ball on the end) to stir and to get the mixture into the jewel cavities (using the ball end sort of like a honey wand).

This was easier to work with! I'm actually going to try something else with these icon_wink.gif

That is terrific!!! They would taste so much better too. Some of my gems are pretty small, so thanks for the tip on the little skewers.
You are awesome!!
