Strawberry-Rose Wine Lollipops
Yes way rosé! Take your favorite summer sip to the next level with our easy-to-make rosé wine-infused lollipops.
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 cup corn syrup
- 3 tablespoons strawberry-flavored gelatin
- 2 tablespoons rosé wine reduction (recipe below)
- non-stick cooking spray
- silicone lollipop mold or parchment paper
- 16 - 20 lollipop sticks
- candy thermometer
Yield: 16 - 20 lollipops
1: Make the rosé wine reduction: add 1 cup rosé to a saucepan and simmer until reduced to 1/4 cup; approximately 25 - 30 minutes. Set aside to cool.
2: Spray silicone lollipop molds or parchment paper with non-stick cooking spray. Insert lollipop sticks into the molds or arrange the sticks on the parchment paper leaving approximately 3 inches between them.
3: In a small saucepan combine sugar, butter and corn syrup and cook over medium heat until sugar has dissolved.
4: Bring to a boil slowly while stirring frequently. Insert a candy thermometer into the mixture and cook until the temperature reaches hard crack stage: 300 degrees F.
5: Remove from heat. Add the strawberry gelatin and two tablespoons of the rosé reduction and stir until smooth. Note: Be careful when adding the wine reduction as the escaping steam can burn as can the hot candy mixture.
6: Quickly spoon the mixture into the molds or drop onto the end of each lollipop stick. While the candy is still hot, spin the sticks once in mixture to coat. Let cool completely.
