Cinnamon Dusted Coffee Lollipops

The coffee lollipops are more along the lines of a sweet latte rather than black coffee; coffee lovers will adore them, but those who aren't hardcore coffee fanatics will love the lollipops, too.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon Fair Trade ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brewed Fair Trade coffee
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup

Instructions

  • Spray ten 2" lollipop mold cavities with a non-stick cooking spray.
  • Dust each cavity with cinnamon.
  • Place sticks in the molds.
  • Place sugar, coffee, and corn syrup in a large pot on medium-high heat. This mixture will easily fit into a small pot, but choose a large pot for this task because the mixture will start to bubble as it heats and it can bubble over and create a nightmare mess (I'm speaking from experience here).
  • Stir until the sugar dissolves.
  • Once dissolved, don't touch the mixture for the ten minutes or so it takes for it to reach 300 F (hard-crack stage).
  • As soon as the mixture reaches 300 F, remove the pot from the stove and, with an oven mitt for protection, pour the hot liquid into the lollipop molds.
  • While still hot, dust the lollipops with cinnamon.
  • Let the lollipops set until cool (about 15 minutes).
  • Remove from the molds and enjoy immediately or store in cellophane bags tied shut with a twist-tie or ribbon in a cool, dry place for up to one month.
