which is pretty awesome. I’m going to show you two different recipes. Both very easy

Gillian Bower and Clarissa May. We are all making giant slash edible DIYs. All videos
will be linked in the description bar, but first – here’s how you can make a giant lollipop! Making a lollipop from scratch is super easy
and you probably already have all the ingredients at home. For the first recipe we need a giant
mold, one part of water, one and a half parts of corn syrup, three and a half parts of sugar,
cooking pot, candy thermometer, food coloring, flavoring of your choice and a lollipop stick. First let’s prepare the mold. I am making
mine in this large pink tray. We have got to cut out the opening for our huge lollipop
stick. Take a cooking pan – mine has to be pretty
huge. I am using about 7 and a half cups of sugar, 3 cups of corn syrup and 2 cups of
water. If you are making smaller lollipops you will of course need much less of these
ingredients. Place the pan with your sugar, water and corn syrup mixture on the stove
and start cooking at a medium heat. Be sure to stir it constantly so that it doesn’t burn.
When the mixture starts boiling it’s time to add the color to your lollipop – I am
using yellow. The lollipop has a nice caramell-ish taste by default, but you can add flavor of
your choice as well. Dip a candy thermometer into your mixture and wait until the mix reaches
the temperature of 300 Fahrenheit or 150 degrees Celsius. Your mixture has to reach this temperature
if you want your lollipop to set hard. Now we can take our pan off the heat and pour
our melted lollipop into the mold to set. As you can see I covered my mold with parchment
paper to assure that the lollipop won’t stick to the tray. Be very careful as the mixture
is super hot and you might need to ask an adult to help you. Look at this awesome bubbles
our lollipop is making wow, so cool! Leave your lollipop to cool down completely. OK, time to take this beauty out of the mold!
Remove the parchment paper and look at this masterpiece! I decided to take my lollipop
to the next level and add a pair of eyes and mouth to it. So let’s quickly make a blue
lollipop mixture to pour in. In the bowl I am putting three and a half parts of sugar,
one and a half parts of corn syrup and and one part water. Bring that to a boil while
constantly stirring. I added a bit of blue food coloring. Keep stirring until the mixture
reaches the hard crack stage at 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Now we can pour the blue lollipop
mix into the eye and mouth molds. I made these little molds from cardboard and parchment
paper. I think giving a face to our lollipop made
it so much more special! Once this is completely set, you can remove the molds and look at
this perfection! I mean come on! Isn’t it crazy beautiful?! I am so pleased with how
this lollipop turned out. And honestly I was pretty surprised to find out that it tastes
exactly like store bought lollipops. You can of course make yours using any color you like.
I chose yellow for mine because I wanted it to look like emoji. I had so much fun with
this DIY and I couldn’t be happier with the result. Me and Mr lollipop we’ve really bonded,
yeah we’re BFFs. If you want to make small and a bit more practical
lollipops you can just pour the mixture on a parchment paper. These lollies set very
quickly because they are thin and small. The ingredients are so affordable and just think
how many lollipops you can make using one cup of sugar. A lot of lollipops! You can
make them using different colors and they taste amazing! Alternatively you can just
pour the mixture on a tray, like I’m doing here. You get this large sweet piece which
you can then crush into little hard candy pieces. Yummy and inexpensive treat! You shall not pass! Oh no! Since in some countries corn syrup is a bit
hard to get hold of, I am going to show you how you can make a lollipop without it! I’ll
make this big yummy heart lollipop. You’ll need a cooking pan, a silicone mold
of your choice, one part of water, two parts of sugar, food coloring and a lollipop stick.
Yep only three ingredients, how cool is that? Let’s prepare our mold first. Using a knife
make a cross cut in the mold edge like this. Take any kind of stick, I just decided to
use a wooden cooking spoon and put it through the opening. Grab some oil or a non stick
cooking spray and spray a few times into the mold to make sure your lollipop won’t stick. Now let’s put together our three ingredient
lollipop. Put two parts of sugar and one part of water into a cooking pan. Just make sure
that the amount of sugar is double the amount of water. Give it a quick stir and put the
pan over the stove. Cook on low to medium heat while constantly stirring. When the mixture
starts boiling you can put in a bit of food coloring. This time I went for the beautiful
teal color. Keep boiling and stirring until the melted sugar reaches 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
Time for the fun part – we can now pour our lolly mixture into the mold and wait for
it to cool completely. I think it’s so fascinating to watch the mixture cooling down. These bubbles
are completely mesmerizing. Once your lollipop is set, you can take it out of the mold and
you are finished! How flipping adorable! And to think that we only needed water, sugar
and food coloring to make this. Crazy! Making my own lollipops was seriously so much
fun. When I first started thinking of making a giant lollipop I thought it would be so
tricky and complicated. It is the same in life. Going into the unknown to try new things
may be scary and intimidating. But sometimes you just have to jump in and have faith that
great things will happen. Don’t think about everything that could go wrong, focus on the
positive instead and fight the obstacles when they arrive. Gosh, those are some pretty deep
thoughts for a lollipop tutorial. Hope you liked this giant lollipop tutorial!
Give it some love for more DIY videos and tell me in the comments which lollipop flavor
is your favorite. Imagine you’re in a store. You’re about to pick a lollipop. Which flavor
do you chose? I normally go for Cola and sometimes apple. Anyway, thank you so much for watching
this video and don’t forget to check out other videos from this collab, they are all pretty
epic, and I will see you soon. Bye! They say that it’s the little things in life
that count the most. I agree, but there’s also big or giant things in life that make
it that extra special 😉
