INGREDIENTS

2 cups granulated sugar
¾ cup water
2⁄3 cup light corn syrup
LorAnn Oils Red, Yellow, or Orange Liquid Food Color
1–2 tsp LorAnn Oils Super-Strength Maple Flavor
Bronze or gold luster dust, optional

Equipment:

5 LorAnn Oils Maple Leaf Sheet Molds
Candy thermometer
Pastry brush
LorAnn Oils Lollipop Sticks, Sucker Bags, and Twist Ties

Note:
Before making candy, it’s always a good idea to test the accuracy of your thermometer. To do this, fll a pot with water and clip on the thermometer. Bring the water to a boil. At sea level, water boils at 212° F; if the reading on your thermometer is higher or lower, take the difference into account when testing the temperature of your sugar syrup. Have all ingredients and tools assembled and within easy reach of the stove. Metal spoons and measuring utensils are recommended.

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Lightly spray dry candy molds with non-stick cooking spray. Insert lollipop sticks into molds.
  2. In a large saucepan, mix together sugar, water, and corn syrup. Stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves.
  3. Insert candy thermometer, making certain it does not touch the bottom of the pan. Bring mixture to a boil without stirring.
  4. Wash down any sugar crystals that form on the sides of the pan with a wet pastry brush, or cover saucepan with lid and allow moisture to wash down excess sugar.
  5. Continue to boil without stirring. Remove pan from heat at the hard crack stage, precisely 300° F. After boiling has ceased, add several drops of desired LorAnn Oils Liquid Food Color and stir. Then, stir in LorAnn Oils Maple Flavor.
  6. Carefully pour, or spoon, hot syrup into prepared molds. Cool completely. Remove lollipops from molds.
  7. In the case of leftover syrup, spray a piece of aluminum foil with cooking spray and place it on a cookie sheet. Pour extra syrup onto foil to harden. Break into pieces once cool.
  8. Use a small paint brush to lightly brush luster dust onto outer edges of lollipops, if desired. Place lollipops in sucker bags. Secure with twist ties. Store in a cool, dry place. Do not refrigerate.
For easy cleanup, soak pan and utensils in hot water until hardened candy is dissolved.
