Tips for Making Your Own Homemade Strawberry Lollipops 

Homemade lollipops also have a certain charm that comes from their imperfections. Here are a few tips for making your own homemade lollipops:

  • Use a candy thermometer to ensure that the sugar syrup reaches the correct temperature. If it’s too hot, the lollipops will be hard and brittle; if it’s too cold, they’ll be soft and sticky.
  • Use a piping bag or squeeze bottle to fill the mold, as this will help to avoid air bubbles.
  • Dip the lollipops in sugar once they’ve cooled and hardened for a perfect finish.

With these tips in mind, you’ll be able to create homemade lollipops that are both delicious and fun to eat!
