  • Summary

    You could buy peppermint candy, but nothing comes close to the tingly, verdant flavor of real mint. These sweet lollipops make wonderful treats for both children and adults. The color is a very pale green, which can be enhanced with a drop or two of food coloring.

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup water
    • 3 cups packed mint leaves (peppermint or spearmint)
    • 2 cups sugar
    • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
    • 1/4 teaspoon pure peppermint or spearmint extract
    • Equipment: a candy thermometer; 24 lollipop sticks; cellophane wrappers (optional)
