i saw these fun jolly rancher suckers in last months family fun magazine and thought it would be the perfect treat for family home evening. (its’ the trifecta: easy. not messy. yummy)
i bought this bag of jolly ranchers at walmart for like 2.88.
and the sucker sticks are at walmart and joanns for pretty cheap…
i let each of my kids pick out 3 jolly ranchers and you place them right by each other….on tinfoil..then parchment paper (i used freezer paper and it worked great)
DON’T USE WAX PAPER!
they take 5-7 minutes at 275 degrees.
we had to watch the melting process…
pull out and put sticks in immediately (roll them to get the candy over them so they don’t fall out)
they cool pretty darn fast too–so we didn’t have to wait too long.
(i’ve also seen sugar cookies with the middles cut out and a jolly rancher in the middle melted. makes it all pretty.
my kids got in a clawing fight–(see the scratches by my son’s eye?) i’m all, “husband, why didn’t you do anything?” and he’s all, “i did. i told them to fight like real people and use fists.”

That is completely cool!!! I LOVE it! Would you want to link that up at the DIY SHowcase I am hosting? I would love it if you did. It opened Saturday and runs the month of May. This is on the list for me and the kiddos to do this weekend! Who doesn’t love Jolly Ranchers?

This looks like so much fun!! I pinned it! Thanks for sharing.
OMG that’s hilarious! My husband would say the SAME thing, I’m sure! I tore this page out of the magazine too, we hadn’t tried it yet though, glad to see it really works! Thanks for sharing!
The kids chose these to try out first from the box. Now there’s a big surprise!
the only candy! lol!!!! I was too afraid to include any chocolate in case it had to go to texas and then it would get all melted and gross!!!
