Fun & Easy Jolly Rancher Lollipops Kids Will Love To Help Make (VIDEO)

If you have a sweet tooth as serious as mine, then this Pinterest-inspired project might be for you! They're also a cute homemade treat to consider as Valentine's Day approaches.

Do it yourself Jolly Rancher suckers, also known as Jollypops, have been making the viral rounds, and after seeing how easy they appeared to be I decided to give them a try.

Here's all you need:

1 pack of Jolly Rancher candies

1 bag of lollipop sticks

Line your unwrapped candies up in groups of three (with enough space to add a stick to later), preheat your oven to 275, bake for 6 minutes, and roll your lollipop stick onto the melted candy after you've removed them from the oven.

Did my Jolly Rancher suckers turn out as colorful and perfect as the pins I'm seeing on Pinterest? Watch below and decide if these jollypops were a Pinterest win or a Pinterest fail!

This is neat, I want to try it with other candies!

I bought a bunch of Jolly Ranchers to make sugar scrubs and discovered that after grinding them up in a food processor they eventually melt back together, making them suck for sugar scrubs. Lol. I think you could make these without the oven if you are willing to wait longer for the end result, and they might not be a smooth unless it's a hot day. Just make the powder, make piles of the candy dust, add the sticks, cover, let it sit for a while. I don't know how long it took the candy to look almost clear again, though.

I'm just musing.

I remember making Jolly Rancher roses when I was a kid. Boiling water in a pot with a bowl over. Put red and green Jolly Ranchers inside the bowl and leave until they are soft enough to form. Green for the stem them red for petals. Let cool!
