Anyone who follows me on Pinterest knows I have issues.
I am a woman possessed, and I don’t apologize for it.
I get excited every time I am on there with all of the eye candy, home décor pictures, gardening ideas and drool worthy recipes! And every once in a while I actually use an idea in my real life!
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.Print Recipe

These lollipops are SO pretty and creative! Who knew that you could melt Jolly Ranchers into a lollipop?! I think they would be popular with both kids AND adults! I’m sure they are very tasty with the flavors combined. Great Olympics segment – very festive!
They are so cute, I can not wait to make them, hard to believe they are so easy to make. Looking forward to doing this with grandchildren.
LOVE these vibrate pops Heather. I have been seeing them all over Pinterest 🙂

These are so COOL! when I saw your first photo, I thought for sure they’d be difficult to make and then was so happy to see how easy they are to prepare. Love these lollypops and can’t wait to make them with my nieces and nephews!
