Daisy Lollipops

April 21, 2012 |  by  |  Blog, DIY, Food for the Soul, Summer

Have you ever made lollipops? It is super easy and fast, and you don’t even need a mold!

 

 

To pimp them up a little, I placed little daisies into them. You can also use other beautiful edible flowers or petals like pansies (Sprinkle Bakes used them and they turned out beautiful!), Chamomile, Lavender, Indian Cress, etc…


I used the ‘no corn syrup version’ , but I’m posting the recipe with corn syrup as well. All my German readers can look for recipes here, in case you don’t have corn syrup.

1. No corn syrup lollipops:

2 cups of sugar
2/3 cup of water
1/8 teaspoon Cream of Tartar
2 to 3 drops flavoring oil
Food coloring

 

1. Corn syrup lollipops:

2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1 cup sugar
2 to 3 drops flavoring oil
1/2 a cup of water
Food coloring

Combine the sugar and Cream of Tartar (or corn syrup) with the water. Stir them together until the sugar is dissolved. Boil the mixture until it’s 290 degrees F. (Or putting a drop of it in cold water, which results in a hard bead.)

 

Take it off the heat and then add the flavoring and coloring. Pour the mixture into the prepared molds like here.  Place a little daisy carefully face down on the hot candy. Then pour a little bit more hot candy over the flower  to cover the backside.

Cool down and wipe the powered sugar off of the lollies. Rinse them with a little bit of water to get all the sugar off.

 

Enjoy your weekend!

  3. Hi, where did you get your daisies? Were they organic or from a flower market? Thanks!

    • from a flower market. You have to wash them really well. I would assume you can buy those dried at an organic store as well.

  18. Hello! firstly, congrats on your amazing ideas as well as your photographs! they are beautiful! I tried to make these lollipops as I think there are so cute. I wanted to ask you if there is any trick for keeping the flowers fresh looking as the heat from the syrup made them a little sad :)
    many thanks in advance!
