Willing to personal swap for art of my doggies!

« on: August 20, 2008 07:24:28 PM »

This has been on my to-do list for awhile, and we're having a party this weekend, so I decided to make some today.  I used a lollipop recipe, and used cinnamon extract, and cinnamon candy hearts.  Figured this would go well with Goldschlager, or Fireball.  I would like to do some peppermint extract/candy cane ones for Christmas.  Also things like coffee/expresso beans for Kahlua, black licorice for Sambuca, lemon (those mini fruits) for lemon drops, etc.  If I can get the bubbles out, I thought it would be cute to have things like gummi bears, etc in them too. 

Overall, I was relatively happy with the first attempt - but if anyone can advise on how to diminish the bubbles, I would appreciate it!  The recipe I had only made enough to fill 3 of the 4 molds.



Here they are in the silicone mold








Lollipop recipe:
INGREDIENTS:
   1 cup sugar
    cup light corn syrup
    cup water
    tsp extract of your choice (vanilla, mint, cinnamon, coconut, etc)
   Food coloring (optional)
   Lollipop molds and sticks
PREPARATION:
1. Prepare your molds by spraying them with nonstick cooking spray and inserting lollipop sticks into the molds.
2. Combine the sugar, corn syrup, and water in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Insert the candy thermometer and stir until sugar dissolves.
3. Allow to boil, without stirring, until candy reaches 295 degrees (hard-crack stage).
4. Once the candy reaches 295, remove it from heat. Stir in the extract of your choice, and, if desired, food coloring.
5. Spoon the candy into the mold cavities, making sure to cover the back of the stick.
6. Allow to cool completely and remove once hardened.

i could be wrong but you can try to get rid of the bubbles the way you do it to resin, by applying heat with a torch. just slightly warming the surface.  Huh

awesome idea, but i gotta ask, how do you not get your hands sticky holding them?

I just found that site recently, and I love it! They have other things besides the Fred products, too. Smiley Looks like the shot glass molds are on sale right now.

But we have flamethrowers. And what this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, "Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I'm way too far away to get the job done. If only I had something that would throw flame on them."
