Step 1: Get your ingredients ready

Makes  about 12 lollipops

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2/3 cup light corn syrup
  • red food coloring
  • white lollipops stick - you can find them at your local craft store.
You can even add flavor oils like peppermint or strawberry if you like.
<p>I am not one to comment unless something goes really wrong or really right...this went really right!!!! I am reading the Harry Potter series with my kiddos and after every book we watch the movie. Tonight is book 3 movie night and I made this because they mentioned blood flavored lollipops in the book. They turned out perfect (not as good as yours and a little yellow because I used my raw sugar, but this was my first ever candy work so I am happy). I flavored them with 20 drops of my cinnamon essential oil right at the end, it added just a hint of flavor and I love it!! Thank you for helping me make our family time magical!</p>
<p>Hello!!!!!! OMG You just made my day!!! Thank you for being so awesome with your comment :) Yours look AMAZING!!!!!!! Harry Potter and a little magic in everyday life just makes the world a better place right :) </p>
vhere would you get a silicon baking sheet exactly? i tried this on wax paper... yeah didnt work exactly like i wanted. and i didnt do the drops of blood i put like 6 drops in the sugar as i stirred. but i think i should have put it in after now that i think about it.<br /> <br />
Wal-Mart has them. They are in the kitchen supplies, rolled up in a tube. The ones I have are called Silpat Mats.
You can get them online or at a local kitchen supply store. I often end up picking mine up at a local Bed, Bath, &amp; Beyond. They are pretty expensive but they are AWESOME for cooking on. Stuff doesn't stick to them at all and they are safe to really high temps!
you could use a marble slab.
C&ordm;, F&ordm; or K&ordm; ??? <br> <br>310 K&ordm; is less than needed. <br>310 C&ordm; is more than needed. <br>310 F&ordm; is the right one ?? <br> <br>:) :) :) <br> <br>an old world's inhabitant :)

parchment paper should work; wax paper will melt a little but parchment has a much higher temperature resistance.
&nbsp;<br /> Thanks!!!!! :) <br /> Silicon baking mats work the best - If you leave near a Bed Bath and Beyond they carry Silpat. I have not tried using anything else but the silicon mat. I highly recommend getting a candy thermometer too - it will take the guess work out of knowing when the sugar gets to the right degree!!!&nbsp; I would love to know how they turn out and take some pictures!!!!!<br /> <br /> Have fun !<br /> LIsa<br /> <br />
All I did is just let the red food coloring drop into the sugar and then it did its on thing on top - I believe at first it did set on the top of the sugar but once it became one ( ha! ) with the sugar it worked out fine. Let it harden completely before you pull it of the mat. <br /> <br /> I hope this works for you!!!!!!!!!!!! ENJOY!<br />
&nbsp;Hi I love these. I just got done and they're setting. BUT, not hardening. What should I do!? Please help!!!! I'm making them to take to the midnight show of New Moon&gt; ;) HELP! ;)
Do you have a candy thermometer - you really need to make sure that the sugar is between 300 - 320 degrees hard crack stage on the thermometer. I went to Kroger to pick one up when I made these lollipops. It was about 6.99<br /> It makes all the difference. <br />
Great idea! You got my vote!
Your hubby is such a doof!&nbsp; LOL.<br />
hello from richmond va..this is definitely a winner....we love this...bed bath and beyond friends
I LOVE&nbsp;this!!!
Thanks there Jill!!!!!!!! How's the couponing???<br />
<p>Great idea lancmaltby!</p>
I used concentrated hebiscus hurb&nbsp;sirup insted of&nbsp;red colore&nbsp;, its prty commen hear in egypt<br /> it did the job very well and gave the loly pop a very very cool ,unic and powrful tast and bloody natural colore
Those look so cool! I&nbsp;love them!<br /> Did you use any flavoring?&nbsp;
I messed this up twice :(<br /> <br /> First time it wouldn't set and the second time I burned the sugar stuff <br /> <br /> :(
Great 'ibble. I'm just unclear on one point. How do you squirt a few drops <strong>in to</strong> each lollipop? Hypodermic syringe? <br />
&nbsp;These are SOOO creepy! Thanks for the great instructable!
What colouring did you use (specifically)?<br /> <br /> L<br />
I just used straight red food coloring that you get at the grocery store. It comes in a pack with yellow green and blue.<br /> <br /> <br />
Thanks, I was interested as to whether it was Cochineal, Ponceau 4R, <span id="main" style="visibility: visible;"><span id="search" style="visibility: visible;">Brilliant Scarlet 4R etc.<br /> <br /> L<br /> </span></span>
How does it taste? i might make some tomorrow<br />
Well they are just plain sugar sweet unless you add some flavor oils like peppermint of spearmint. <br />
Noticed your views are a lil' low stil. Took the liberty of adding this to a couple of relevant groups like 'MaKe'. That should pull some more views in.
Thanks you awesome!<br />
Cool! Mmm i want to try it ^^<br />
They are very good - and they turn your mouth blood red!!!<br />
These are great!<br /> I wanted to make some clear suckers for Halloween, but I couldn't think of anything good to put in them but like candy corn.<br /> Well done.<br />
Thanks! <br />
Awesome I'ble! Clear instructions and one hellava effect. Those look terrific!! Well done.&nbsp;
thanks so much!<br />
molecular gastronomy on 'ibles? awesome<br />
Thanks!<br />
