Making your own lollipops is easy and you can change the flavor and color to suit the season.
Brush inside surfaces of lollipop molds with oil.
Combine sugar, syrup and water in medium saucepan; stir well. Cook over low heat without stirring until candy thermometer reaches hard crack stage (310 F). Remove from heat; stir in extract or flavoring and food coloring.
Immediately pour hot mixture into molds. Press sticks in indentations of molds, gently twirling to embed. Cool completely; lift lollipops out of molds, and wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Store in a cool, dry place. Makes about 8 (2 inch) lollipops.
* You can substitute your choice of flavoring or food coloring to suit your tastes.
