Make 5 Lollipops

What you need:

• 35 round hard candies (we used LifeSavers)
• 5 white lollipop sticks

What to do:

1. Remove wrappers from hard candy pieces and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

2. For each pop, arrange seven candies in a circle, with one in the middle and six around it. If you want a really perfect circle, line a cookie cutter with parchment paper and place around the candies before you bake.

3. Heat the oven to 300°F and bake for 6 to 8 minutes, or until melted together.

4. Immediately insert a stick.
