Cool Find of the Week

I am always looking for ways to make myself some of the neat wedding ideas that inspire me or more budget friendly options. I found this great idea for lollipops today. I think doing some hear shaped pops would be great for the candy buffet and would be easy to personalize in our colors. I thin

Stained Glass LollipopsLollipopsticks_1

  • 8 Reynolds® FunShapes™ Stars Baking Cups
  • 8 (6-inch) Lollipop sticks
  • 40 Hard candies*

PREHEAT oven to 300°F. Place Reynolds FunShapes Stars and/or Hearts Baking Cups on a cookie sheet with sides.

MAKE a hole in one side of each of the baking cups near the bottom of the cups with a toothpick. Insert the lollipop sticks from the inside of the cup through the hole made with the toothpick and push it to the outside leaving at least 1 inch inside the cup.**

ARRANGE 5 candies in each baking cup, placing one candy over the lollipop stick. (It does not need to lay flat, it will melt around the stick.)

BAKE 5 to 6 minutes or until candy is melted. Carefully remove baking cups from cookie sheet onto a tray to cool; immediately twirl stick to completely coat with candy. Prop sticks with handle of a wooden spoon if necessary to keep the sticks straight in baking cup while lollipop cools.

REMOVE lollipops from baking cups by tearing foil and peeling away from lollipops.

*REYNOLDS KITCHENS TIP: We used Jolly Rancher® Hard Candy for our testing.

**The lollipop sticks must be inserted from the inside out to avoid getting the pierced foil edges in the melted candy.

Number of Servings:8

They could look very similar to some cute lollipops I was thinking about ordering from Candy Warehouse. But not sure we could use 120. Making fewer with the recipe above may be a better option.
