How To Make Turkey Lollipops

in-process-1

Preheat oven to 275 degrees Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and unwrap Jolly Ranchers.

in-process-2

Stick together 2 yellow jolly ranchers vertically and make sure they are touching. Then take your red, orange and green jolly ranchers and stick them above the yellow ones in a fan motion. Leave enough space so when they come out of the oven you can put a sucker stick in them.

Stick in oven for about 5-6 minutes. Keep a close eye on them and take them out when you get the melted desire you are wanting.

in-process-4

Immediately roll the end of a sucker stick in each lollipop towards the bottom. Quickly add the candy eyes, tic-tacs and redhots. If candy starts to harden, don’t worry!

Get a lighter and heat where you want the candies to go. Hold for a few seconds. It will melt the candy just enough so you can stick the candies on. Set at room temperature until hardened, about 10 minutes.

Enjoy!
