(crafting on a dime) jolly rancher suckers

Rocky Mountain Mama, one of my good IRL (in real life) friends, is back on the blog today showing us how to make jolly rancher suckers. I’m not even pregnant and these still look yummy! Can’t wait to try this tutorial out!
While pregnant with baby #2, we purchased a ridiculously huge bag of Jolly Ranchers to help with the nausea. Well, I ended up using only about half the bag, so I needed to do something with all those extra Jolly Ranchers. And as a mother of a preschooler, I am always looking for projects he can help me with, so we made Jolly Rancher suckers! I also made them with the intention of using them while in labor with baby #2.

Jolly Ranchers ($3.99)
Sucker sticks ($1.99)Total Project Cost: $6.00

Step 1: Preheat your oven to 200*. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat mat. Put your Jolly Ranchers together in groups of 3. Make sure to leave enough room between them so you can add your sucker stick!

Step 2: Place cookie sheet in oven and wait, but don’t go far! Once Jolly Ranchers start to melt together (it took nearly 10 minutes for us) remove cookie sheet from oven. You may have to check the candy a couple times. You want them melted enough so that the sticks are easy to put in.

Step 3: Place a sucker stick in the middle of each melted candy. Twist stick in order to coat stick with candy. You may want to place suckers back in oven for a couple more minutes in order for candy to coat the entire stick or if candy cools too quickly.

Step 4: Let suckers cool completely and enjoy!
