  • •1 Kool-Aid Green Apple Packet
  • Cup •1/2 Kool-Aid Cherry ready to make with 35% less Sugar
  • •2 12oz packages Candy Melts one green and one pink
  • t •food coloring if you don’ use colored Candy Melts


  1. Melt one package of Candy Melts in a double boiler. I just make one with two old one I have around for this kind of thing and then a non stick one for the top..fill bottom pan half way with water and then put other pan on top with Candy Melts. Put onto the stove at low to medium heat..The candies will melt fairly fast
  2. Then pour 2 1/2 teaspoons of the Green Apple Kool-Aid. You may want to do a taste test as to how sour you want this
  3. Spread the first layer onto a cookie sheet
  4. While allowing to harden start the next layer by following the exact above directions, BUT..use the Cherry flavored Kool-Aid juice drink. This does turn the Candy Melts a little pink but not same advise…start with pink Candy Melts
  5. Then spread the pink candy melts on top of the hardened green.
  6. You can decorate with topping to your hearts desire!

Recipe Notes

TIP: Now..I didn’t know that Green Apple Kool-Aid didn’t have color so I used green food coloring. If you use food coloring you need to put a little solid vegetable oil into the candy melts to keep it smooth as I found out. You cannot add liquid to Candy Melts or it changes the consistency.

So my best tip for this recipe..use colored Candy Melts
