Halloween treat pops
- 6 or 10-inch wooden pop sticks
- Gummy worms, as needed
- 2/3 cup of corn syrup
- 2 cups of sugar
- 2/3 cup of water
- 1/4 teaspoon of orange, cherry, or lemon extract
- 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- Few drops orange food coloring
- Place a silicone mold sheet on a baking pan.
- Keep the sticks on the pan, and keep three pieces of gummy worms above the tip of each stick.
- Mix sugar, corn syrup, and water in a clean, dry saucepan. (Use a heavy gauge pan.)
- Over high heat, bring it to boil and cook without stirring till the contents reach 305 °F or "hard crack" stage on a candy thermometer.
- Use a Pastry brush dipped in ice-cold water to rub of any candy sticking to the top of the container.
- When the contents reach 305 °F, turn of the heat, and keep the bottom of the pan into an ice bath for a few seconds to stop the candy from cooking.
- Add the vanilla extract and food coloring and stir very gently with a wooden spoon so the color is evenly distributed.
- Pour the syrup over the gummy worms and just over the stick.
- Cool the candy for at least 20 minutes.
- Remove the lollipops off the silicone mold (wrap in an airtight container or either serve immediately).
Tip: for giving out as a Halloween treat, wrap them in an aluminum foil.
