Making Lollipops


Jolly ranchers
Tin foil
Lollipop sticks
Baking Spray


Preheat oven to 225 degrees.

1. For an easy lollipop, place three jolly ranchers side-by-side on a greased cookie sheet.
2. For a shaped lollipop, wrap tin foil around a cookie cutter(s) and coat with baking spray. Set the cookie cutter(s) on a greased baking sheet.
3. Place three (or more depending on the size and shape you have made) jolly ranchers inside the tin foil mold. Or crush to make it even easier.

Bake for 5 to 6 minutes, watching carefully as they will become paper thin if you leave them in too long. Remove from the oven.

Gently press a lollipop stick halfway through the jolly ranchers, twisting slightly in order to completely mold the candy around the stick. If you are using the cookie cutter method, carefully peel away the tin foil from the candy and then insert the lollipop sticks.

Set aside and allow to cool completely.


  1. oh, my preschooler would go crazy if I made these. Seems like it’d make a fun birthday party activity, and of course become the party favors.
