Fossil Pops

Fossil Pops

Ingredients:
12 lollipop sticks
Gummy candy (worms, fish, dinosaurs, whatever you can find)
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup light corn syrup
3/4 cup water
flavouring oil or extract ( remember oils are VERY strong flavoured!
Use just a little.) use about 1/4 tsp oil - up to 2 tsp extract.
yellow food colouring

Instructions:
Arrange 6 of your sticks on the cookie sheets so they won't be to
close to each other.
Put 1 -2 gummy candies at the top of the stick.
Stir sugar, corn syrup and water in a pan over med- high heat until
sugar dissolves.
Now WITHOUT stirring boil this until a candy thermometer reads 300*-
310* F. IMMEDIATELY remove from heat.
Wait until boiling stops.
Now add your extract or oil and a drop of food colouring. (see
CAUTION at bottom of page)
Working very quickly spoon 2 - 3 TBSP of syrup over the candies and
top of the sticks.
You can also use moulds if you have them.
Don't worry if the candy melts a little it will get firmer again as
the syrup cools.

CAUTION: Boiling sugar solution is extremely hot and dangerous, keep
it away from kids. In the event that any does get on the skin, hold
the affected part under running water for at least five minutes. If
the skin blisters or breaks seek medical attention.
