Tea Bomb Ingredients
Tea Bombs Directions
Heat candy mixtureAdd powdered sweetener, syrup and water to a medium saucepan. Heat over medium high heat until a candy thermometer reaches 300 degrees F (about 5 minutes once boiling). Remove from the heat. Add a few drops of food coloring if using.
Fill the moldsAdd about 1-2 tablespoons of the liquid candy mixture to a cavity of the mold and move the liquid up along the edges using a spoon or small paintbrush. Keeping pushing the liquid up until it hardens. Work quickly to ensure all the area is coated with the liquid. It's best to work with 2 cavities at a time. Repeat with remaining molds.
Peel from moldOnce the candy has hardened, peel away from the silicone mold. Add loose tea or a tea bag to six of the half moons.
Seal the ballsTo seal the two halves together, heat a skillet over medium heat. Melt the edges of a half moon with no tea on the skillet. Then quickly place on top of the other half with the tea to seal. Repeat with remaining balls.
