Honey Pops
Serves: About 20 lollipops
  • 1 Cup Honey
  • Lollipop Sticks
  • Silpat Mat or Parchment Paper
  • A Candy Thermometer
  1. Pour honey in a small sauce pan and bring it to a boil over medium heat. If you have a candy thermometer, use it to tell you when the honey reaches about 300 degrees Fahrenheit. It'll take about 10 minutes. If you don't have a candy thermometer, you can test the honey by dropping a bit of it into a cup of ice water. If it hardens (like candy) it's ready. If not, keep on boiling.
  2. *Keep a super close eye on your honey. It will seem like nothings happening for a while, then it will increase in temperature very quickly. It's better to test often and too soon, than to miss the mark and burn a batch.
  3. When the honey reaches 300 degrees, remove it from the burner.
  4. Pour small circles on the silpat mat or a piece of parchment paper. After pouring five or so circles, stop and put the lollipop sticks in each circle of honey. Give the sticks a little twist to be sure they're really stuck in there. Continue creating small honey circles on the mat, stopping every few minutes to put in the sticks.
  5. Allow them to cool and harden on the counter completely at room temperature, about a half hour.
  6. To store, wrap them with a bit of plastic wrap and secure them with string or a twist tie or package them in individual cell packets tied with string. Adorn with a cute personalized labels and tags!
