If you’re a fan of the Halloween movie “Trick ‘r Treat,” then you’ll love these spooky treats. Not only are they a tasty treat, but they also capture the essence of the mischievous and lovable character, Sam. So, grab your apron, put on some Halloween tunes, and let’s get started!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon flavored extract (e.g., vanilla, strawberry, etc.)
  • Orange and yellow food coloring
  • Lollipop sticks
  • Lollipop molds or parchment paper
  • Black icing gel

Instructions

Step 1: Prepare your workspace by laying out your lollipop molds or parchment paper. This will prevent the lollipops from sticking.

Step 2: In a medium saucepan, combine the granulated sugar, corn syrup, and water. Stir the mixture over medium heat until the sugar has dissolved.

Step 3: Once the sugar has dissolved, insert a candy thermometer into the saucepan. Continue to cook the mixture, without stirring, until it reaches the hard crack stage, which is around 300°F (150°C).

Step 4: Remove the saucepan from heat and let it sit for a few moments to allow the bubbling to subside.

Step 5: Add the flavored extract and a few drops of orange food coloring to the saucepan. Stir the mixture until the color is evenly distributed. If desired, you can also add a few drops of yellow food coloring to create a marbled effect.

Step 6: Carefully pour the hot candy mixture into the lollipop molds or create small circles using a greased spoon on parchment paper. Leave some space at the top of each mold or circle to insert the lollipop sticks later.

Step 7: While the candy is still hot and malleable, insert a lollipop stick into each mold or circle. Twist it gently to ensure it is fully coated with the candy mixture.

Step 8: Allow the lollipops to cool and harden completely before removing them from the molds. This process usually takes about 15-20 minutes.

Step 9: Once the lollipops have hardened, carefully remove them from the molds or peel them off the parchment paper.

Step 10: Using the black icing gel, draw Sam’s iconic pumpkin face on each lollipop. Get creative and add your own personal touch!

Conclusion
