Root Beer Float Lollipops

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Total Time 22 minutes
Servings 5 lollipops

Ingredients

  • 5 root beer barrels
  • 5 lollipop sticks
  • Gummy Candy Strings I used Haribo Sour S'ghetti
  • White chocolate chips or candy coating I used CandiQuik

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  • Place 5 unwrapped root beer barrels on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Leave lots of space between the root beer barrels, so that there is space to spread and so that you can add a lollipop stick.
  • Bake the root beer barrels for about 12 minutes at 300 degrees. Remove from the oven and quickly put a lollipop stick into each melted candy. Give the lollipop stick a gentle twist to wrap the melted candy around it, ensuring it really stays in place.
  • Working quickly, shape the hot candy into a mug shape using a thin knife. You want the sides and top of the mug to be somewhat flat.
  • Quickly pull some of the hot root beer barrel to one side, forming a handle. Press the candy above and below the handle back towards the center to make the side of the mug. This really helps to make it look like a root beer mug.
  • If the candy hardens before you can do the all of the shaping, simply return it to the oven to soften again.
  • Melt the white chocolate chips or candy coating in the microwave.
  • Dip the tops of the root beer float mugs in the melted white chocolate or candy coating. Place them back on the silicone mat to harden.
  • Cut small segments of brightly colored, gummy candy strings for straws. Attach with a little of the melted white chocolate or candy coating.
