Jolly Rancher Candy Lollipops

Jolly Rancher LollipopsThese Jolly Rancher Lollipops are a fun and easy treat to make with your kids. Add the candy to a Ziplock bag and then gently hammer the candy to break it up into smaller pieces. They melt pretty fast in the oven, 7 to 8 minutes, so you’ll want to work with two pans so that you have the next batch ready once the first comes out of the oven.

The directions I found online for these lollipops all said to add the stick once the candy melts but I found that they cooled too fast to add it to more than one or two before the candy was too hard to insert the stick. It was easier to lay the sticks down, add the candy pieces on top and then bake. Right before I took the pan out of the oven, I gently turned each stick to coat with the candy.

To be able to lay the sticks flat on the pan, you will need to use the baking pan upside down. Be sure to put the candy on top of parchment paper or silicone pads to keep them from sticking.

  2. Place your baking pan upside down. Cover with a sheet of parchment paper. Spray the parchment paper lightly with non-stick spray. Adding the sticks first, spoon around a tablespoon of candy pieces over the lollipop stick.

  3. Bake for around 8 minutes. Right before removing the pan from the oven, gently turn the stick to coat it with candy. Remove from the oven and then carefully slide the parchment paper from the back of the pan onto the counter top to completely cool.

  4. Once they are completely cool, the candy will harden and they'll be easy to remove from the parchment paper. You can now serve or insert into a lollipop bag.
