Burnt Sugar Lollipops

Fall 2004

Your rating: None Average: 4.8 (6 votes)

No special equipment or fancy molds are needed for these gorgeous jewels—just a little patience and steady hand to pour out the hot sugar syrup. Wrap the lollipops individually in large, clear lollipop bags and seal with a silver twist-tie or a piece of ribbon. Affix them individually to the bows of your holiday presents or hang them on your tree and offer them to guests as they leave.

Like another cook who posted, I have made these many times with great success and lately without. I had the same results--lollipops remained chewy, when I tried to cook them longer they became crystallized. Would love suggestions or perhaps temperatures to use with a candy thermometer. I, too, used maple syrup instead of corn syrup. And while, these aren't exactly healthy, they make a good substitute when all of your children's friends are eating artificial color and flavor lollies and you feel you want to give them a treat.

Making candy is great fun, but sugar plus corn syrup do not equal "healthy treat". The granola bars are a far better choice.

I made these many times (with maple syrup instead of corn syrup)... beautiful, easy and free of anything artificial. I made them on lollipop sticks for my son's birthday. However, the last time I tried to make them for some reason it didn't work. They never hardened--just remained pale and chewy. When I tried again I cooked them longer on the stove and the sugar just crystallized. The only reason I can think of is maybe the humidity level was too high. Any suggestions?????

We made these especially because my 2 year old has severe food allergies. We all enjoyed them - they were easy to make (my 3 year old "helped") and pour - you just have to make sure the parchment paper is flat (I think next time I'll cut the parchment to fit inside the cookie sheet). They were fun to make and fun to eat!
