Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2/3 cup corn syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon oil
  • 30 cinnamon sticks (5 inches)

Nutritional Facts

1 lollipop equals 60 calories, trace fat (trace saturated fat), 0 cholesterol, 5 mg sodium, 16 g carbohydrate, 0 fiber, 0 protein. Diabetic Exchange: 1 starch.

Directions

  1. Using a pencil, draw ten 2-in. ovals on three sheets of parchment paper. Place paper, pencil mark side down, on baking sheets; chill until ready to use.
  2. In a large heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, water, corn syrup and cream of tartar. Cook and stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil. Cook, without stirring, until a candy thermometer reads 325° or mixture is a golden amber color.
  3. Remove from the heat; stir in oil (keep face away from mixture as oil is very strong). Immediately ladle mixture over ovals; press a cinnamon stick into each. Cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 month. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.
Editor's Note: We recommend that you test your candy thermometer before each use by bringing water to a boil; the thermometer should read 212°. Adjust your recipe temperature up or down based on your test.
