Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups honey
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Sprinkle of cayenne optional

Instructions

  1. In the pot of your Instant Pot, or in a sauce pan for use on the stovetop (choose a medium one, it will bubble up), combine honey, cinnamon, and optional cayenne with a whisk.
  2. Remove whisk, clip on candy thermometer so that the bulb is in the honey mixture but not touching the bottom of the pot, and turn the Instant Pot on to Saute- Medium. Alternatively, heat pan on the stovetop over medium heat.
  3. Heat to hard crack stage (300* F). Do not stir at all during this time.
  4. As the sugar mixture heats, place lollipop sticks in candy molds (these are the molds that I used), or line them up on a parchment-lined cookie sheet, or a silicone baking dish (no parchment needed on the silicone).
  5. Once at the correct temperature, working quickly, carefully pour hot honey mixture into the lollipop molds, or over the top inch of the lollipop sticks on parchement.
  6. Allow to set for 10 minutes, then twist the sticks to make sure they are coated completely with the honey mixture.
  7. Continue to allow to set for 2-3 hours.
  8. After candy is set, remove from molds or from parchment paper, and store between sheets of parchment in the fridge. These lollipops can sit out on display for hours (like at a party) but should be stored longer than that in the fridge.
