Candy Filled Lollipops / #SundaySupper

Do you ever have left over candy after the trick or treaters have come and gone? I almost always buy too much, which of course means that I need to get rid of it very quickly, as I never met a "treat" I didn't love! Today, we are celebrating leftover Halloween candy by creating recipes using that candy! I made these cute, little Candy Filled Lollipops using mini candy corn and candy corn sprinkles. They are simple to make and only take about 45 minutes from start to finish!
Candy Filled Lollipops

1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon Sugar 
1 tablespoon Light Corn Syrup
1 /8 cup Water
Candy Thermometer
1/2 teaspoon Clear Vanilla Flavoring
Mini Candy Corn 
Candy Corn Sprinkles
Mini Lollipop Mold
6-6" Lollipop Sticks
(makes 6 Lollipops)
(printable recipe at end of post)
 



This is the lollipop mold I used. I bought this at Michael's.
Add the sugar, corn syrup and water to a small saucepan. Use a small saucepan with a pouring spout on the side. If you use a large saucepan, the mix will burn before it reaches temperature. Bring the mixture to 300 degrees F. This is the hard crack stage. Immediately remove the pan from the heat. Let the bubbling calm down. Add vanilla flavoring and quickly mix with a spatula or spoon. Just one or two stirs is plenty.
Pour syrup into molds. Add sticks to the molds. Start adding one or two candy corns to each sucker. Add candy corn sprinkles. Place mold on a baking rack to set up. Let lollipops set up until mold is only slightly warm. Once set, remove from mold. After lollipops are completely cooled, place lollipops in plastic bags, tie with ribbons, and give to friends!

    1. Thank you Laura! They really are tasty. The sucker part was hard, but the candy corn was very soft.

    1. Thank you Heather! At first I thought the lollipop mold I bought (from Michael's) might be too small, but I ended up loving the size of the lollipops!
