Lollipops, even for the most novice candy maker, are very simple to make. As a precaution, adults should handle the melted sugar because it is very hot. Children, however, can arrange the lollipop sticks, direct the color and flavoring choices, and lift the cooled lollipops from the baking sheet. Lollipop sticks can be purchased at craft stores or from candy-making supply shops.
