So the other day I thought to myself, “Hmm, I want something sweet,” but not just anything, a lollipop. But what flavor lollipop would it be? After you read this DIY recipe you can pick whatever flavor lollipop you want and make it right at home. 

You’ll need for this recipe:

-two cups of sugar 

-2/3 cups of light corn syrup

-¼ cup water 

-3 teaspoons flavor extract, I’m using lemon 

-assorted sprinkles

-and don’t forget your candy at the monitor. 

And because I personally struggled trying to find lollipop sticks, I’m using coffee stirrers.

Prep your baking pans, or cutting boards with parchment paper. Combine your sugar, corn syrup, flavoring, and one-fourth cup water in a small sauce pan and set on medium heat. 

Place the candy thermometer in your saucepan. 

Increase the heat to medium high and bring the mix to a boil, stirring until the sugar has mostly dissolved. 

It’s important not to have any crystals forming on the side; take a brush and dip it in water and rub it along the sides of the pan. 

Boil your mixture until it reaches 260 degrees Fahrenheit or the candy stag. Then right away, place it into the bowl of ice water, making sure no water gets into the actual pot. Swirl around the pot to cool the mixture for roughly 15 to 20 seconds and remove from the bowl of ice water. 

Now, this is where you have to work quickly, otherwise you’ll experience what I did.

Transfer your mixture into a measuring cup for an easy pour, working quickly. 

Pour your syrup onto the parchment paper and form one to two inch circles, allowing space in between for the lollipops to spread.  Press in your stick and sprinkle the pops with the candy of your desire. 

Allowed to cool and completely harden before you then carefully peel the pops off of your parchment paper. 

The taste is yummy!
