Serves: 1 Dozen Lollipops
Ingredients
  • ¼ c rum
  • ¾ c sugar
  • 3 tb corn syrup/Lyle's golden syrup
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ tb rum
Instructions
  1. In a heavy bottomed pot, combine all of the ingredients. Shuffle them around so everything gets absorbed.
  2. On medium heat, bring it to a boil without stirring.
  3. It will begin to turn a caramel color.
  4. Your sugar syrup should register at 300 degrees with a candy thermometer. Alternatively, you can dip a toothpick/spoon into it and into cool water. If it hardens immediately, it's ready. It should not be sticky or tacky but completely hard.
  5. Turn off the heat and add in the ½ tb of rum.
  6. Pour into desired molds.
