You can make lollipops without molds but of course they will be somewhat freeform. Just pour the candy by the teaspoon onto a silpat , maybe 6 per tray. Push a stick immediately into the puddle of candy and wait for them to cool. So if you have extra candy from a batch that is too big for your molds you do have this option. Also you can just pour the excess candy completely onto the silpat and when it cools break it apart for hard candy.

My aunt LaMae used to make this:

2 c sugar
1/2 c light corn syrup
2/3 c water
1 tsp vinegar
1 tsp red food colouring

1. Combine everything in a heavy saucepan; cook over low heat, stirring constantly until the sugar dissolves.
2. Let the mixture cook, without stirrinng, over low heat until it reaches the hard crack stage.
4. Remove from heat.
5. Add 1 tsp of flavouring--we've always used anise oil.

6. Pour into greased pan (shalllow). Cut across it as it cools. We always put the pan outside on the snow...

My aunt LaMae is 90 years old and she still makes this candy for Christmas.

Lollipops Hello everyone, I am new to this, I am trying to make some hard candy lollipops for a baby shower. I only have 1 mold that I will be using, can anyone tell me how to make a very small batch or can I reheat the mixture after my first mold has become hard? How much color and flavor oil do I use? Thanks everyone:chef: 3 stars 1 reviews
