What You'll Need:
- green gum balls
- black licorice
- black royal icing of flooding consistency
- black royal icing of thick piping consistency
- piping bag and small leaf tip
- icing bottle
Working on one gum ball at a time, use a piping bottle to pour a small amount of black flooding icing onto the top of each gum ball. Use a toothpick to help pull the black icing into "drips" around the gum ball. Then place a black licorice stem in the center. Place in an egg carton or cake pop pan/tray to help hold the gum balls upright while they dry.
