    Homemade Jolly Rancher Candy Recipe
    Jolly Ranchers Ingredients:
    • 3/4 cup white corn syrup
    • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 1/2 teaspoon citric acid (get it here:
    • 1-2 drams hard candy flavouring (get it here:
    • gel paste (get it here
    1. In a medium sized saucepan, over medium heat, combine water, sugar and corn syrup together and stir until incorporated.
    2. Once sugar has dissolved, insert candy thermometer and heat mixture until 300F (hard crack). Remove from heat and pour in flavouring, coloring and citric acid. Stir until bubbles have disappeared. Pour the hot liquid into parchment lined loaf pan. Allow to cool for about 20-25 minutes.
    3. Once cooled slightly, remove candy from the pan and score the slab of candy with a sharp knife in one direction, then score it in the opposite directions to form small rectangles.
    4. Allow scored slab of candy to cool completely before breaking or cutting along the score lines.
    5. Wrap candy in clear cellophane for serving.
    How to Make Jolly Rancher Lollipops
    • Jolly Rancher hard candies
    • Silicone lollipop mold (get it here:
    • Lollipop sticks
    1. Preheat oven to 275F.
    2. Fill each cavity tightly full of jolly ranchers. Place into the oven and allow the candy to melt completely, around 15-18 minutes. Insert the lollipop stick and allow to cool completely before popping out of the mold.

      Cookies Cupcakes and Cardio any didn't my mixture harden? My mixture is still a paste and won't get brittle enough to crack..i even put in freezer and is freezing cold gel rather than hard candy.

      Andrea Humphries I don't think so unless to even out the flavor

      Cookies Cupcakes and Cardio thank you for your informative video my question is would you use citric acid for like a root beer or butter scotch flavor? I know that those aren’t jolly rancher flavors but just a curious thought.. thank you

    I made the hard candy today in raspberry flavour for the first time and they taste veeery good 🤤 i'm from germany and don't know jolly rancher and therefore i can't say if it tastes like them.
    I read that the citric acid gets bitter when you add it at too high temperature so don't add it immediately after you pull the sugar from the stove top. This may be the reason why some people said they burned it.
    I cut them into normal pieces and got about 100 pieces 😏
    Tomorrow i will do other flavours 😛

    If your mold isn't big enough to do the whole batch at once can you melt the mixture back down without trouble when you're ready to mold another batch?
