One of the best parts of my job is sharing simple – easy – creative ideas with you all, that will help you be heroes to your family. Regardless of how old your children are, they will love these Jolly Rancher Lollipops. One of the first things my 16 year old spotted when he got home from school today were these Lollipops. Right away, he asked…”are they free to eat?” And was thrilled when I said yes.

In the past I have made these Homemade Jolly Rancher Lollipops with 3 of the hard candies, but this time I decided they were a little large, so I tried a single candy and also 2. I think they turned out a lot better, but of course, you can use any number that you like.

These make a quick everyday treat, but you could also use them for Birthday Parties, end of the School Year Party, Baby Shower, or you could make them in your favorite team colors for a Sports Party. The ideas are endless, and don’t limit yourself to Jolly Ranchers {of course, we love them} but any hard candy will work.

How to make Jolly Rancher Lollipops

  • Preheat oven to 275 degrees
  • Unwrap Jolly Ranchers
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper on top, spray lightly with non-stick cooking spray
  • Lay candy on cookie sheet so that it is touching
  • Bake for about 7-8 minutes, keeping a close eye on them, remove from oven when they are melting together but be careful not to leave them too long
  • Immediately add the lollipop stick, turning it once to coat
  • Let them set at room temperature about 5 minutes to harden

 Helpful Tips

  • Jolly Rancher candies are available at Walmart, Grocery Stores, even gas stations. If they are available in your area, you can find them online.
  • Any type of stick will work – lollipop, popsicle, etc. The lollipop sticks are available at Walmart near the cake decorating supplies or online. They are the easiest to use, because of their shape, but popsicle sticks will work too. There are different sizes of lollipop sticks available, I like the 4 inch ones for these Lollipops.
  • Be sure to have the stick ready when you pull them from the oven and immediately gently push them into the soft candy and roll them over so the stick is coated.
  • Parchment paper works best. Be sure to lightly spray with cooking spray. You can try Wax Paper, but sometimes the lollipops will stick.

    Hi Liz, I wanted to let you know that a website that takes other people’s tutorials, and collages the images has taken your lovely pictures from this post. While they do link to you, there is really no reason for readers to click over here, as all the info they need is in the visual tutorial. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I thought you might want to know. It is frustrating to work so hard creating a project, only to have all your hard work stolen. I found this while investigating stolen content from my own blog. http://diyallthings.blogspot.com/2014/12/homemade-jolly-rancher-lollipops.html

      Thanks so much Amanda! The crazy thing is, the second set of pictures are not mine. They are on Pinterest, and linked to me, but are not mine. There is a link and no instructions given on the post. So people would have to click over to see what temperature to cook the lollipops at, unless they just experimented.
      I appreciate you letting me know! I’ll keep on eye on it.
      ~Liz
