ADHD Lollipops

>> Tuesday, February 10, 2009

Nothing is funner than candy, but with colors in everything these days, it is hard for a child with ADHD to avoid these so I found a lollipop recipe that will be fun even for them.

2 cups sugar
2 cups water
1/3 cup milk free margarine (optional; gives a butterscotch flavor)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon root beer flavoring or any other flavor allowed on the FD
40 lollipop sticks

boil sugar and water slowly until it reaches the boiling point. Add margarine and allow to melt. Boil until 310 degrees or until threads form when dipped from spoon (hard crack stage). Remove from heat and skim off top scum. Add vanilla and root beer flavoring. Stir to mix well. Place sticks on aluminum foil and pour candy from a spoon onto the sticks being careful not to run candy together. Pour quickly or candy will harden in pan. Reheat to melt if needed.
