Homemade Rose Lollipops!


Happy Valentine’s Day! We wanted to make some sweet and charming homemade rose lollipops using edible dried flowers and flakes of edible gold! They turned out so pretty with the dried rose petals and specks of gold leaf throughout. Personally, I think these would be great party favors for events! You can wrap them up individually and tie them with a bow or message. The homemade lollipop recipe is super easy too, but you must use a candy thermometer. Enjoy and stay charming!

I love the way the dried roses look mixed with the gold. We added it in the mold before we poured the mixture. These are the molds we used.

    I love these for my wedding favors! How exactly did you add the dried rose petals. How long should I dry them? Do you know how long theyre good until?(rose petals). Do they add flavor? Lol, sorry for all the questions, I’m just so intrigued.

    These lollipops are the loveliest candies I have ever seen! Rose and gold definitely look so beautiful together! Can I ask where you bought the dried rose petals from? I am looking all over for them! Thanks! <3

      Not sure why! One thing that is incredibly important is making sure the candy thermometer reaches “hard crack” it HAS to reach that, can’t even be a little less… has to be exactly to hard crack or they will not harden when they cool. You can even go a tiny bit over to insure but not too much because you will burn them. Candy making is very temperamental!

      Hi! They take longer to prep and can be tedious because you have to get it to the exact temperature on the candy thermometer. Then you let them cool and that’s pretty quick! Hope you have fun with them! You can make them any favor you want really using different extracts!

    Eden, Love your lollipops, they look beautiful! I am excited to try these and am looking for organic edible flowers now. Do you (or anyone) know approximately how long these will stay fresh (not gummy or sticking to cellophane bags)? I would like to make them for shower favors, but ahead of time.
    Thank you!

      Hi! If you cook them to the right temperature and they are a true hard candy they should stay fresh a few days. If they’re not cooked properly they will be more gummy and sticky. They can be a little difficult but worth it!

    Hey I was wanting to make something like this for wedding favors. I was wondering how long do they keep? Specifically the flower pieces, because they are submerged in candy are they “preserved” ?
