|Hard Candy Lollipops|
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 2/3 cups light corn syrup
- 3/4 cup water
- 1 dram concentrated flavoring We carry over 50 flavorings
- 1/4 tsp. coloring We have12 colors to choose from
- Candy thermometer We suggest LA-5710
- Hard Candy Molds We used (8H-1217), (8H-1218), (8H-1233)
Lightly oil hard candy molds with vegetable oil. In a large saucepan, mix together sugar, corn syrup and water. Stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Bring mixture to a boil without stirring. when syrup temperature reaches 260 degrees F, add color. Do not stir, boiling action will incorporate color into syrup. Remove from heat at 300 degrees F, or when drops of syrup form hard brittle threads in cold water. (Temperature will continue to rise after removing from heat, so remove precisely at 300 degrees.) After boiling ceases, add flavoring and stir. USE CAUTION WHEN ADDING FLAVORING TO AVOID RISING STEAM. Pour into lightly oiled hard candy molds or onto cookie sheet. When cool, unmold or break candy into pieces.
We added the Valentine's Day sugar decoration on the lollipop before it hardened. We also used royal icing and tip # 18 to do a shell border on the lollipops.
