You’re sure to win over all of your Valentines with these sweetheart lollipops! Flavored with sweet Cherry or spicy cinnamon, there’s a favorite for all ages.

What You Need

1 cup sugar 1/3 cup corn syrup 6 TBSP water candy thermometer food coloring cinnamon or cherry flavoring lollipop sticks heart shaped candy molds ribbon (optional)

What You Do Prepare the lollipop molds by lightly spraying with vegetable spray. Place lollipop sticks into the slots in the molds.

In a medium pot, combine sugar and light corn syrup, stirring until the sugar is completely dissolved. Once all of the sugar has dissolved, stop stirring and continue to cook until it reaches a temperature of 300* on your candy thermometer. Remove from heat, then stir in food coloring and flavoring. Pour the hot syrup into the molds. Allow to cool thoroughly before removing the lollipops from the molds. Tie ribbon around the sticks to decorate. Makes 8-12 lollipops depending on the size of the candy mold.
