Step 1: What you will need
You'll need the following:
1 1/2 - 2 cups of maple syrup (depending on how many you would like to make)
lollipop mold (resistant to high temperatures) DO NOT USE SILICON
Large pot and a candy thermometer
Step 2: Cook some Bacon
I always cook more then I need (I tend to eat 3 pieces for everyone I need) I love Bacon.
Step 3: Heat up that Syrup
It will take about 15 minutes, but once it reaches 300 degrees F take it of the stove and let sit for about 30 seconds. If you do not have a candy thermometer you can do the water test. Drop a small bit of hot syrup in a glass of water, if the syrup turns into a little ball you are ready to go.
You can also add a pinch or two of cinnamon to enhance the taste.
Step 4: Be quick...
If you syrup has hardened, just put it in the Microwave for about 20 second and you will be good to go again.
