Anyone who follows me on Pinterest knows I have issues.
I am a woman possessed, and I don’t apologize for it.
This was one of those times! These Rainbow Lollypops were something I saw on Pinterest as “jolly rancher lollies” and adapted for my own needs.
My kids had the best time helping with these. They got to unwrap and arrange all of the candies themselves and they were quite pleased with themselves.
I used these in my recent Olympics Party segment on New Day Northwest, and everyone thought they would go home and make them with their children and grandchildren.
These were unbelievably easy and I highly recommend them!
(I chased the pin back to what I think is the original source, “ A little art can’t hurt”.)
2-3 bags assorted jolly ranchers
To make these, you preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
You cover a sheetpan in a piece of parchment paper.
Line up 3 jolly rancher candies in a row (think about the fact that you will need space underneath the lollypop to place the stick – so space accordingly.
Another tip is that the candy starts to firm up so quickly, that you wont be able to get a stick in the candy if you have to many to get through. I found that 8 lollypops at a time were a good number to go with for each batch.
Bake the candies at 200 for 10 minutes.
As soon as you remove the candies from the oven, swirl a lollypop stick gently at one end of the candy and as soon as the stick has a coating of candy on it, leave it to firm up.
I let my pops sit and rest about 20-30 minutes.
I displayed them in vessels filled with rice, which helped the lollypops stick out at angles.
