Ever wanted to try your hand at making your own lollypops? Well we have an easy step by step guide to help you through the process!

Even though we would say this is a fun activity to do with your children, we would exercise some caution as the molten candy is very very hot, adult supervision should always be undertaken.


What you will need

 

  • 1 cup sugar
  • Thermometer (Ideally a candy/digital thermometer, any that can be inserted into a boiling liquid is fine)
  • ½ cup light corn syrup
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1-1/2 tsp flavouring of your choice (We used Flavor Apprentice Strawberry (Ripe) Any flavouring of your choice will work, you could always use Capella Cola or even One on One Peanut Butter Jelly for something a bit different)
  • Food colouring (optional)
  • Lollypop moulds and sticks

 


Method

  1. Prepare your lollypop moulds by spraying them lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Wipe out the inside with a paper towel, so that only the thinnest layer of oil remains. Place the lollypop sticks into the moulds.
  2.  Combine the sugar, corn syrup, and water in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir until the sugar dissolves, then brush down the sides of the pan with a wet pastry brush (wash immediately to avoid ruining the brush). Once boiling, insert a candy thermometer.
  3.  Allow to boil, without stirring, until candy reaches 295 degrees Fahrenheit (146 C).
  4.  Once the candy reaches 295 F, remove it from heat. Allow it to sit until it stops bubbling completely. Stir in the flavour of your choice, and, if desired, food colouring. For helpful hints on diluting flavours please click here.
  5.  Spoon the candy into the mould cavities, making sure to cover the back of the stick.
  6.  Allow to cool completely and remove once hardened.

And there you have it!


Once you have tried this and had a bit of practise you might want to try being a bit more adventurous.

  • Make a few batches of different colours and flavours, swirl them together in the mould to create a marbled effect.
  • Add edible paper designs to the centre or back.
  • Add sprinkles or edible glitter.

You have asked and we have listened!

We are currently in the process of adding 30ml to our ranges after a high level of requests, we will have this across the entire site as soon as we can.

Below is a list of the first 40 we have added the 30ml option to. If you are looking for a specific flavour in 30ml that is not lised below, please let us know and we will see if we can help sort that for you!

*****Unfortunately we will not be able to extend the 30ml option to the Flavour Art range, this is due to the fact we receive our flavours directly from Flavour Art and they come pre packaged in 10ml bottles. Apologies for any disappointment.
