Lollipop sticks - found at any well stocked craft store (I bought ours at Joann's)
Plastic bags to put over the lollipops (again at Joann's)
Bakers twine or ribbon (to tie the bag to the lollipop stick)
Put candies, nuts etc in little bowls, place sticks near by work space. Rip off a longish sheet of wax paper, about 24 inches.
Melt chocolate in the microwave or over a double boiler. If you use the microwave (I did!) be very careful not to burn your chocolate. I put it in for 1 minute, stirred and then put it in for 45 second more and it was perfect.
Chop your chocolate into smallish pieces and melt.
Using a tablespoon, pour chocolate onto wax paper. I originally drew circles onto the wax paper but discovered this is not necessary with only 1T* or so of chocolate. If chocolate is especially runny let it cool a bit until it becomes thicker.
Immediately after pouring the chocolate, place a lollipop stick in it. Turn the stick so it is coated on all sides.
Decorate with assorted goodies
Let harden for 2 hours or so (faster in the fridge)
Place in lollipop bags and tie with twine!
