Sweetheart Lollipops

You're sure to win over all of your Valentines with these sweetheart lollipops! Flavored with sweet Cherry or spicy cinnamon, there's a favorite for all ages.

What You Need
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup corn syrup
6 TBSP water
candy thermometer
food coloring
cinnamon or cherry flavoring
lollipop sticks
heart shaped candy molds
ribbon (optional)

What You Do
Prepare the lollipop molds by lightly spraying with vegetable spray. Place lollipop sticks into the slots in the molds.

In a medium pot, combine sugar and light corn syrup, stirring until the sugar is completely dissolved. Once all of the sugar has dissolved, stop stirring and continue to cook until it reaches a temperature of 300* on your candy thermometer.

Remove from heat, then stir in food coloring and flavoring.

Pour the hot syrup into the molds. Allow to cool thoroughly before removing the lollipops from the molds. Tie ribbon around the sticks to decorate.

Makes 8-12 lollipops depending on the size of the candy mold.

Hi Tami great blog...very professional looking. I have been looking for "sucker molds" and can only find the "molding" chocolate kind. Any suggestions? Maybe Idaho is not that hip on old fashioned sucker making.Thanks for commenting on my "homestyle" cupcakes...

Hi Annisa :)

Have you tried somewhere like Michael's Craft store? If you don't have any local candy supply stores in your area, I would suggest ordering them over the Internet.

Thanks for stopping by!
