  • Makes
    1 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • Dash salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon oil
  • 3 to 4 drops red food coloring
  • 12 lollipop sticks

Directions

  • Butter 12 assorted 3-in. metal cookie cutters. Place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet; set aside.
  • In a large heavy saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup and salt. Cook and stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil; cook, without stirring, until a candy thermometer reads 300° (hard-crack stage).
  • Remove from heat; stir in oil and food coloring (keep face away from mixture as oil is very strong). Immediately pour sugar mixture into prepared cutters.
  • Remove cutters just before lollipops are set; firmly press a lollipop stick into each. Cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
