Witch's Broomstick Lollipops


I haven't posted in a while because my family was enjoying our last vacation of the year in North Carolina.  We had a wonderful time but I sure am happy to be back in the swing of things.  

I am going to turn my focus on Halloween treats for the next few posts.  The first one I wanted to share is a quick, easy and tasty Halloween snack that your children will love.  


Ingredients:
  • 1 c sugar 
  • Lollipop sticks 
Directions:

Heat a medium pan over medium-high heat.  Add the sugar.  Stir constantly until the sugar caramelizes and turns golden brown.  Remove from heat. 

Lay lollipop sticks on a lightly-greased sheet of parchment paper.  

Dollop a drop of the caramelized sugar on the lower quarter of the lollipop sticks with a spoon.  Sweep downward with the spoon to form the broom bristles.  

Allow to cool completely before removing.  

Enjoy!
