Glucose syrup can also be easily made​​, since sometimes it is hard to buy.

Ingredients for the glucose syrup:
♥ 2.11 oz corn sugar (glucose)
♥ 1.4 oz water

  1. Boil corn sugar with water and let it simmer for just a little while
  2. Place an empty glass on a scale, fill in the glucose and refill with hot water until you reach 3.5 oz again
  3. Allow to cool completely. It can easily be prepared the day before making the lollipops
  • To make the lollipops combine sugar with glucose syrup in a pan add water and boil until hard crack stage (300-310F)
  • To find out the right consistency, there is a little test you can do. Just fill a glas with water and add half a teaspoon of sugar liquid. If it’s become solid immediately, you have reached the perfect consistency, if it stays soft let it simmer a few more seconds and try again
  • Once the mass has reached the right consistency, take off the heat and stir in the cherry flavor and coloring
  • Pour small round drops on a silicone mat, push in a lollipop stick and decorate as desired
  • Allow to cool down for 10 minutes, then they can be easily detached from the silicone mat
