    4 oz heavy cream or 1/2 cup
  • Continue stirring until it reaches 146-147 degrees Celsius. Then, gently pour the candy into the previously buttered silicone lollipop mold.
  • Use your spatula to help the whole candy pour out, but without forcing it. Just let it flow.
  • Let it cool for about 2 minutes, then put your lollipop sticks inside the hard candy.
  • Let the lollipops cool for about an hour or so before removing them from the mold, they need to be completely firm when you do that.
  • It is very important that once you unmold your lollipops, keep them in a dry place overnight.
  • And voilà! You'll be able to enjoy your candies the next day! Just be patient.
