by Belinda Mooney

This week it's Edible Art. Here is a fun treat for all you Dinosaur lovers out there!

We are making these as part of our Dino theme

Fossil Pops

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
flavoring oil or extract ( remember oils are VERY strong flavored! Use just a little.) use about 1/4 tsp oil of up to 2 tsp extract.
yellow food coloring

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