I've gotten into making my own hard candy lately. It's been great, but one thing I've noticed is that after the lollipops cool, they have a kind of sticky film that doesn't go away. Jolly Ranchers and other commercial candy doesn't seem to have this problem.
I've not yet found or a good way to wrap the candy. I tried a kind of ziplock-bag-type plastic wrapper and the candy stuck to it really bad. Would cellophane get rid of stickyness? Could it be humidity at work? Or why's it doing this, anyways?
I was thinking that or cornstarch. Lightly is the operative word, though. Also try wrapping them in wrappers designed for candy (if you have a local cake decorating store, they usually sell candy stuff, too, or a craft store, like Michael's or AC Moore). Maybe they'd work better.
