I found these on and they are great. They are also really easy to make.

Worked really well. I used strawberry jello and blue raspberry jello as they were on hand...worked great! I made a couple batches. Make sure you heat the mixture up to 275, otherwise the suckers don't harden. VERY tasty and easy.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Butter two cookie sheets.
  2. Arrange half of the lollipop sticks on each and set aside.
  3. In a small saucepan over low heat, stir butter, sugar, and corn syrup together until sugar has dissolved.
  4. Slowly bring to a boil, stirring frequently.
  5. Insert a candy thermometer into syrup and continue cooking until temperature reaches 275 degrees.
  6. Stir in gelatin until smooth.
  7. Remove from heat. (This sugar syrup is very hot and can cause a painful burn!)
