My daughter's best friend loves Jolly Ranchers. When I asked Jaylah what her bestie wanted for her birthday on the list were Jolly Ranchers. While pinning fun treats on Pinterest I saw a tutorial for Jolly Rancher suckers and I thought his would be the amazing idea!
Parchment Paper-I used waxed paper and the suckers tended to stick to the paper. DO NOT USE WAX PAPER
Bag of Jolly Ranchers
Clear treat bags with twist ties
Preheat the oven 250 degrees.
Cover a cookie sheet with foil first then cover the foil with parchment paper.
Line up the jolly ranchers 2 or 3 to a sucker. I didn't have any reason for the pairing, but you could put your favorites together to create something epic!
Put the candy in the over for about 5-6 minutes. Be sure to WATCH them. They really start to melt about the 6th minute.
When they come out of the oven you have to be quick in getting the sticks in the candy. They harden fast.
Press the sticks into the candy and turn the stick to get it covered in the candy.
Some directions will tell you to put them in the fridge for 10-15 minutes to really get them hard. Others will tell you to leave them out on the counter to do the same thing. I put them in the fridge and it made taking them off the paper easier.
Here are some of the finished products all packed and ready to go to the birthday party.
