Lollipop or Hard Candy recipe:
2 Cups sugar
2/3 Cup corn syrup
1 Cup water
1 dram of candy flavoring
You'll need to set up your lollipop molds before you get cooking.
Each mold snuggles a lollipop stick and clips in place.
lightly spray the molds with non-stick spray and begin to boil your first 3 ingredients: sugar, corn syrup and water.
Boil on high until temperature reaches 300* or Hard Crack. (takes 10-15 minutes depending on heat)
Remove from heat, add flavoring and food coloring. (we used Root Beer and it needed no additional coloring)
