Orange Spring Lollipops! 

These fun little treats are not only beautiful but they are super tasty too! AND we think they are the perfect way to spread a little sunshine to the ones you love! So grab the recipe below and whip up a batch of Orange Spring Lollipops today!

 

Ingredients:

2 Cups Granulated Sugar

2/3 Cup Light Corn Syrup

3/4 Cup Water

1 Dram (1tsp.) LorAnn Gourmet Orange flavoring

Orange Zest

Edible Flowers – We used pansies (Our flowers were picked and pressed from the garden last fall)

Powder Sugar (optional)                                                                                                                      

Candy Sucker Molds

Directions:

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 orange zest and flowers onto the candy molds.

Remove from heat at 300 degrees. After boiling action ceases stir in Orange flavoring. AVOID rising steam when stirring. Pour syrup into lightly oiled candy mold (found 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

With LOVE,

Alanna, Natalie &  Lyndsie
