Makes 6 Lolly Pops
Place the sugar, water, syrup and cream of tartar in a pan and heat on the cooker and stir until the sugar starts to melt and dissolve.
When the mixture starts to boil stop stirring.
When the temperature reaches 300¬?F take the pan off the heat.
When the temperature drops to 150¬?F add the absinthe.
Pour the mixture in to the molds and place the lolly pop sticks in to them.
Leave them to set for 20 minutes and then remove them carefully from the molds.
cant wait to try
How much golden syrup and cream of tartar and water are you using? I can see it is 1 cup of sugar...Really want to have a go at this!! I tried last night, but they didn't set properly
I must make these. I love making hard candy and this looks like the best recipe ever... Might try it with some "Green Dragon" instead of the Absinthe, seeing as its all illegal here in the US. Oh YES! Thank you for this kick-arse recipe, and your mold is ingenious!
Absinthe isn't illegal anymore! I was buying Le Tourment Vert for a couple years. My local shop doesn't carry it anymore tho. You may have to use Lucid..Absinthe and vodka mixed. I live in Idaho...just FYI.
This look excellent! I'm gonna have to try these, they'de make great christmas presents x
wickedd! good for parties and gatherings
I wish I could try this but Absinthe is illegal in my country =[
If you can't get Absynthe try Sambucca, Ouzo or Anisette they all have the anniseed flavour, but you would need to add a bit of green (or any other!?) food colouring as they are all clear liquids - unless you get Black Sambucca - now there is a thought - black lethal-lolly-pops.... :o)
have you ever been to lollyphile.com?
You could probably poor these onto spoons and make them coffee mixers!
Wow! I made them using grenedine instead (non-alchoholic, since Im not legal)and they turned out great!
