DIY Honey Lollypops

Welcome to my Craft Time Thursday this week I am exploring Honey. So lets get started.

HONEY LOLLIPOPS WITHOUT SUGAR

  • 1 cup honey
  • 25 drops food safe lemon essential oil (optional)

HONEY LOLLIPOPS WITH SUGAR

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 Tablespoons water
  • 25 drops food safe lemon essential oil (optional)
  • Prep – Set out the lollipop molds, making sure the sticks are in place. For easy clean up, lay parchment paper under the molds.
  • Heat – In a small saucepan, heat the honey over medium heat. Using a candy thermometer, watch the honey, stirring frequently until the thermometer reads 300 degrees. As soon as it reaches 300 degrees, immediately remove from heat. Let the honey sit a few minutes until the bubbles go down.
  • Stir – Add in the lemon essential oils (if using). Stir to mix.
  • Pour – Working quickly and VERY carefully, spoon in the hot honey into the lollipop molds. Fill all of the molds and rotate the sticks to make sure they are coated in the honey.
  • Let Set – Let the lollipops sit for 30-60 minutes until they are completely hardened. Pop out of the molds and enjoy!

Great to Stir in Tea or for Cold and Flu Season…. Lisa
