Homemade Lollipops

1 cup sugar

1/3 cup white corn syrup
1/2 cup water
1/2 tsp. Flavoring See note 1, below.
food coloring See note 2, below.
l/8 tsp. Citric acid (optional) See note 3, below.

1. Use 1/4 to 1 tsp. depending on concentration of flavoring.
2. To make opaque odors add 1/2 tsp. liquid white coloring (Liquid Whitener).
3. Citric acid may be added to fruit flavors to add tartness. Use 1/8 tsp. dissolved in 1 tsp. warm water.  Add at same time as flavoring.

Combine sugar, water, and corn syrup in saucepan. Cook on high heat until mixture reaches 280 degrees F. Lower heat to Medium High. Continue to cook mixture to 300 degrees F. Remove from heat. Let stand until bubbles subside (approximately 265 degrees F). Add flavoring and coloring. Stir until blended. Do not over stir. 

This is where I buy my lollipop supplies. 

If you live out West you may be able to find these things in a local craft store..
