We are so excited because we have another DELICIOUS homemade sucker recipe to share with you all today. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner we thought these “Watermelon Flavored Suckers with Edible Confetti Hearts” would make for a super fun treat! And you know what? They are awesome!! They taste so good and the tiny hearts inside make them the perfect treat for you and your favorite Valentine. Give these a try, we know you’ll love them!
2 Cups Granulated Sugar
2/3 Cup Light Corn Syrup
3/4 Cup Water
1 Dram (1tsp.) LorAnn Gourmet Watermelon flavoring
Edible Heart Confetti Sprinkles ( found ours at Hobby Lobby in the baking isle)
Powder Sugar (optional)
Candy Sucker Molds
Combine sugar, corn syrup, and water into 2 quart saucepan. Stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Bring mixture to a boil without stirring.
While the mixture is boiling, spray molds lightly with oil, place sprinkles onto the candy molds.
Remove from heat at 300 degrees. After boiling action ceases stir in Watermelon flavoring. AVOID rising steam when stirring. Pour syrup into lightly oiled candy mold (I found all my fun ones at Hobby Lobby) or onto greased cookie sheet and score with knife to form bite size pieces. When cool, break into pieces and dust with powder sugar (optional) to prevent sticking and store in an air tight container. Will keep for 2 weeks
