  • Heat on medium heat and place your candy thermometer in the pan like pictured above.
  • Heat to a boil while whisking often. Heat until the thermometer reaches 300 degrees. (This took me about 10 minutes.) then turn off the heat and fill your molds.
  • With a spoon, spoon into the lollipop molds. You may need to adjust your sticks as it hardens.
  • Allow to cool completely, then pop the lollipops out and dust with a little powdered sugar or stack them with waxed paper. Store with wax paper separating them in a cool dark place. If your kitchen is hot you may want to store them in the fridge.
