Jolly Rancher Lollipops

Jolly Rancher Lollipops

    This past Saturday, I was so excited to be able to enjoy some warm weather with my family here in New York City. Just to to feel the sun on my face and spend some time outdoors did wonders for my mood and put a big smile on my face. Since my sons and nephews were together all weekend, I decided to make some special treats for them to enjoy. I don’t always indulge their sweet teeth but I wanted to to celebrate the possibility of spring finally starting.

    Some of my all-time favorite candies are Jolly Rancher Candies. I can still remember going to the corner store with my grandmother in the Soundview section of the Bronx and buying a handful of the sweet and colorful delights. Eating them always made me happy and I wanted to see what other delectable and yummy treats I could make with them. It turns out that they are just as delicious when melted and made into lollipops and the kids love them because they can enjoy them while they ride up and down the block on their scooters!
