Spring is officially here and we are welcoming it with open arms!!! How we have missed the birds singing, the flowers, the green, and the smell of rain. That being said, we made some super refreshing lollipops that will for sure please anyone young at heart especially on these fun Spring days.

Lemon Lime Suckers

Ingredients:

2 Cups Granulated Sugar

2/3 Cup Light Corn Syrup

3/4 Cup Water

1 Dram (1tsp.) LorAnn Gourmet Lemon flavoring

Lime Zest

Edible Star Confetti Sprinkles ( found ours at Hobby Lobby in the baking isle)

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 Lime zest and sprinkles onto the candy molds.

Remove from heat at 300 degrees. After boiling action ceases stir in lemon flavoring. AVOID rising steam when stirring. Pour syrup into lightly oiled candy mold (you can purchase molds 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
