How to Make Candy Cane Lollipops

This section shows you how to make the recipe with step-by-step photos and instructions. For the full printable recipe, see the recipe card below. 

First, unwrap the Jolly Ranchers and cut each in half. I used chopper-style kitchen scissors but any kitchen scissors should do the trick.

Next, on a parchment-lined cookie sheet, place Jolly Ranchers in alternating colors in a candy cane shape. Make sure that the Jolly Ranchers are touching each other.

Leave enough space between each candy cane so that when they come out of the oven you can put a sucker stick in them.

Once you have all your Jolly Ranchers in place pop them into the oven until the Jolly Ranchers melt together (should take around 4-5 minutes).

After removing from the oven immediately roll the end of a lollipop stick in the bottom of each sucker.
