Cherry Lollipops

A blast from the past!

If you celebrate Valentine's Day and need a quick idea, these Cherry Lollipops take about 20 minutes from start to finish, taste great-and look good too!
Here's what you need:
  • 3/4 c sugar
  • 1/2 c light corn syrup
  • 1/4 c butter
  • 3oz box of cherry jello
  • 15-20 lollipop sticks (you can find these at craft stores or Wal-Mart in the baking aisle) 
Butter a cookie sheet or line with parchment  and lay out your sticks, make sure you leave room between them for the syrup to spread a little.

Stir butter, sugar, and corn syrup over low heat in a saucepan until sugar is dissolved and candy thermometer reaches 275 degrees.Remove from heat and stir in cherry jello until smooth.  Use a metal tablespoon or  a small metal cookie scoop and spoon syrup over the end of each lollipop stick, cool and store... or share with your favorite Valentine!
