Homemade suckers awesome! We love jolly ranchers over here. It is hard to give one to the big kids and not the little ones. These DIY Jolly Rancher Suckers solved that problem for me. They are fun to make and you can mix and match your flavors. A fun way to make a yummy treat with the kids.
Jolly Rancher Suckers DIY
What you need/supplies:
cooking oil spray
What to do:
The website that I was inspired by to try these is not there anymore:( To keep from having a broken link I removed it.
I used foil and a tiny bit of cooking spray. Parchment paper was suggested. I just didn’t have any at the time. Place three jolly ranchers down one on top of the other. Mix and match your flavors so extra fun. My son helped unwrap the candies. He had already colored sorted the candies while waiting on me start. Big brother also counted out three jolly ranchers for each sucker. Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees. Put cookie sheet with jolly ranchers on it in the oven for 10 min or until melted. When you take them out swirl the sucker stick into the melted jolly ranchers. Then let cool for 30 min. Now you have yummy homemade suckers to eat.
The quality of the photos are not good but you get the point.
The three flavors he counted out for me to put on the cookie sheet. I figured he could use his counting skills while we did this. Making learning fun is key at my house.
He kept jumping around so excited to try his sucker, the picture is blurry but you can see him with the sucker.
Yummy, jolly rancher suckers.
