They turned out great!

I wish I had the molds to make these. What a lovely gift it would be.


Always love a fun recipe! I wanted to do suckers this year too, but time got away and we only got to the cookies. Thanks for sharing!

Pamela Susan

You two should totally make some! Next time I'm in Portland I'm going back to Decorette to purchase more molds. Wouldn't these be fun for birthday parties? :)

This will be fun to make, I'm supposed to make a treat for a school project.

Pamela Susan

Great! Let me know how it turns out! :)


We made these and they were very tasty, but when we tried to package them, they were sticking to the bags. Any ideas on ways to prevent this? Thanks for the great photos!

Pamela Susan

Hi Rosa!

So glad you made the suckers. :) I haven't had issues with them sticking to bags before--did they feel sticky when you touched them? I'm wondering if they were cooked to the proper temperature?


I just made these and they came out great, thanks for a great recipe. I used mint flavoring and teal color. I didn't have any molds so I poured them free-form over the sticks, they look a little odd but taste great.


Yay! I am so happy you made them!! I'm sure the mint flavor was delicious. :)

Yay! I am so happy you made them!! I'm sure the mint flavor was delicious. :)



Approximately how many suckers does this recipe make?

Pamela Susan

Hi Erica,

This recipe filled the ten sucker molds on the cookie sheet with a little extra left over--probably enough to fill one more if I had an extra mold. I hope that is helpful! :)


It is perfect... Thank you!


Im going to try this out tomarrow ^_____^ were going to make them for X-mas ive got some cute little cristmas molds... and for the extras were going to use a small ice cube tray for little jolly ranchers... so with me luck <3 thanks for the recipie!



Love your blog! : ) Just wanted to mention that I make them with sassafras root tea that is steeped with maple syrup, molasses & hot water. Bring it to a rolling boil, turn off, keep covered, steep overnight. The sugars raise the osmotic pressure helping remove the tree sap. Strain and combine with equal parts maple syrup & corn syrup, boil to 310 degrees and drop on buttered pan or in buttered molds. Try adding birch bark or twigs cut small, juniper berries, cloves, anise, cinnamon and ginger. Use the left over to make root beer by diluting to taste and bottling. Let it ferment for 3 days then refrigerate. Open carefully, enjoy, Delicious! Also not completely bad for you because of the mineral rich sugars used & the healthy stuff in the barks. Kids are happy, Mom is happy, everyone is happy! = )
