Hard candy suckers & lollipops are among the simplest candies to
make. There ingredients are basic, being composed of sugar, corn
syrup, and flavoring agents (usually flavored oil bases)The candy syrup is then poured into molds. (Hard Crack Stage 290-310°
F). This recipe will produce a clear, sweet hard candy.

2 cup Sugar
1 cup Water
3/4 cup Corn Syrup (light)
1/2 tsp Oil of Cinnamon - or -
1/2 tsp Oil of Peppermint - or
1/2 tsp Oil of Lemon - or -
1/2 tsp Oil of Orange - or -
1/4 tsp Oil of Cloves
Food Coloring
Confectioners' Sugar
Combine the ingredients, sugar, water and corn syrup in a heavy 2
quart saucepan. Cook, stirring constantly until sugar is dissolved;
then lower heat and boil without stirring until the candy
thermometer reads 300°F. If sugar crystals form on sides of pan wipe
off using a wet paper towel.
Remove from heat, add coloring and oil flavoring. Set one pan of
candy over a saucepan containing hot water. Work quickly. If candy
cools too quickly, set over pan of hot water to soften it. Store in
air-tight container. If using sucker molds, after filling molds, tap
to release air bubbles. Twist sticks in molds to secure them.
More or less, some flavors are stronger than others.
