Make your own Lollipops!

I was wanting to make an end of year treat for my Garrett’s class at school. So the boys and I set out to make suckers with jolly ranchers. The boys loved them and they were a total hit with his friends.

You will need:

  • candies
  • sucker sticks
  • non stick foil
  • a cookie sheet

Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.
Then take one of the best inventions EVER Reynold Non-Stick Foil and line a cookie sheet. The boys helped me unwrap the candy and we laid them out in a square, you can do other shapes as well.

You will want to make sure when you put them on the pan you alternate them 
so that you have room for your sucker sticks.

Put them in the oven for 5 minutes, when you pull them out you immediately lay the sucker stick into the melted goo and twist it to cover it in candy

Now you can see why you need to alternate and leave room. These are so easy and fun for the kids to help with they can do most of the steps. they turn out beautiful and look like stained glass windows

We also made them in Cross shapes and these are the ones we gave to his class. The only difference with this is you have to put the middle one in by itself for 1 minute then add the ones on the sides to get it to melt right.

We wrapped them in cellophane bags with ribbon and put them with a fruit of the spirit bookmark.
Sorry about the really tacky bad background on this one yes it’s a napkin but it’s all I could grab at the moment. Just keepin it real folks.
