  • Sugar: 2 cups
  • Light Corn Syrup: 2/3 cup
  • Flavoring Oil: 2 teaspoons (any preferred flavor like raspberry, cotton candy, or vanilla)
  • Food Coloring: Purple, Black, Baby Blue, Royal Blue, Neon Blue
  • Edible Glitter Stars: For that stellar effect


  1. Prepare the Candy Mixture:
    • In a medium-sized pot, combine sugar, corn syrup, and 1/4 cup of water. Place over medium heat and stir continuously until the sugar is fully dissolved.
  2. Cook to Hard-Crack Stage:
    • Once the mixture begins to boil, insert a candy thermometer. Allow it to boil without stirring until it reaches 300°F (hard-crack stage). The mixture should be watched closely to prevent burning.
  3. Add Flavor and Color:
    • Remove the pot from heat. Carefully stir in the flavoring oil as the mixture will bubble vigorously.
    • Quickly add drops of food coloring directly into the mixture. Use a toothpick or a small utensil to swirl the colors gently to create a galaxy effect.
  4. Form the Lollipops:
    • Pour the candy mixture into lollipop molds. If molds are not available, silicone mats or ice cube trays can be used as an alternative.
    • Immediately sprinkle edible glitter stars over the molten candy for a sparkling, starry appearance.
  5. Cooling:
    • Allow the lollipops to cool completely at room temperature. This might take about 30 minutes depending on the thickness of the lollipops.
  6. Unmold and Enjoy:
    • Once hardened, gently pop the lollipops out of the molds. If using silicone mats or trays, twisting slightly might help release them.

Preparation Time: 60 minutes
