How to Make It
In a heatproof liquid measuring cup with a pour spout, melt 7 candies of the same color for 30 seconds. Continue microwaving in 15-second intervals, if needed, until completely melted and bubbling.
Wearing latex gloves to protect your hands, carefully pour the molten candy into a cup of the silicone muffin mold. Gently tilt the mold in a circular motion so the melted candy comes all the way up to the edge of the mold, without flowing over. If any candy, spills over the edge of the mold, carefully wipe it clean with a damp paper towel. Repeat with the remaining candy to make 5 more cups. Chill the cups in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, until set.
Gently peel the silicone molds away from the top of the candy cups and push up from the bottom to release the cups. Carefully repeat with the 5 remaining cups. Place the candy cups on a tray and refrigerate until ready to use.
To serve, scoop the ice cream into the candy cups.
