    Default Valentine Lollipops

    Try This Technique:
    1. Place unwrapped hard candies in a heavy plastic bag, then place bag on top of a folded towel and crush candies into small chunks with a meat mallet or small hammer.





    Steps 2-4. 2. Line a baking sheet with foil. Place desired cookie cutters on foil, at least 2 inches apart. Divide crushed candies evenly among cutters (about 1-1/2 to 2 tablespoons per lollipop; see photo 2, top). Candy layer should be 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Add small decorative candies or flower petals to crushed candies. (If using flower petals, make sure they are covered with a layer of the crushed candy.)

    3. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 6 to 8 minutes or until candies are completely melted. Cool 30 seconds. Remove cookie cutters with tongs (see photo 3, center), allowing melted candy to spread slightly.


    4. Quickly attach a stick to the base of each lollipop, twisting the stick to cover lollipop end with melted candy (see photo 4, bottom). If desired, use a fork to press more small candies or flower petals into hot lollipops. Cool. Peel foil from lollipops. Makes 8.

    Note: These lollipops are not intended for children under age 3. To prevent choking, the Consumer Product Safety Commission says children under 3 shouldn't handle anything smaller than 2-1/4 x 1-1/4 x 1-1/4 inches
