I love lollipops -- and they make sweet party favors and great stocking stuffers.
I made these lollipops using our hard candy mix. Start by getting your candy molds ready to use by very lightly greasing them. (I spray non-stick spray on a papertowel and then grease them.) Place the lollipop sticks.
Make the hard candy per the package directions. Once the candy gets to 290 degrees, take it off the heat and add flavoring oil and gel paste food coloring and mix. For these lollipops I used 2 large drops of electric pink gel paste.
When ready, spoon the hard candy into the lollipop molds. Tap lightly if needed to work out air bubbles. Let the candy cool until it's cool to the touch.
