Lollipop Recipe

  • 16 oz granulated sugar
  • 10 oz corn syrup
  • 4 oz distilled water (or bottled)
  • 1 1/2 tsp candy flavoring
  • white food coloring
  • liquid food coloring (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon citric acid


  • Prepare your lollipop mold by poking a small x in the base of the heart mold (see blog post for photo example) and inserting lollipop sticks.
  • Combine sugar, corn syrup and water in a heavy-bottomed, stainless steel pot over med-high heat. Bring to a boil
  • Cover the mixture with the lid and let condensation build for 5 minutes (this helps to wash the sugar off the sides of the pan). Remove lid and reduce heat to medium. 
  • Insert candy thermometer and let mixture cook (do not stir) until it reaches 300ºF.
  • Remove mixture from heat and stir in citric acid
  • Divide the mixture into three silicone bowls and add 1/2 tsp of flavoring to each bowl and then the desired amount of food coloring. I did one drop each of white and liquid food coloring per bowl. Stir until combined.
  • If your sugar gets too hard, microwave it to soften for about 10 seconds. Then pour into your prepared lollipop molds and let harden before removing them.
  • Torch the backside of the lollipops with a creme brulee torch to make them shiny then wrap in lollipop packaging or use as a cake topper. Lollipops will be sticky.
