Mermaid Tail Lollipops

Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, my daughter loves mermaids and I really get a kick out of making her yummy mermaid food ideas. There are a few ideas for mermaid foods below, but one of the easiest treats we’ve made is this simple recipe for mermaid tail lollipops. 

These mermaid suckers are literally one ingredient. The one ingredient? Jolly Ranchers.

Who doesn’t love Jolly Ranchers? We took the idea of windowpane (or stained-glass) cookies and turned them into mermaid lollipops. Let’s get started.

Tips to Make Fun Mermaid Lollipops

  • Mermaid lollipops are best enjoyed immediately (mostly because they taste amazing and are so fun). If you choose to store them, place them in an air-tight container.
  • If you’re making these for a mermaid party favor, use a small cellophane bag to protect them.
  • You can either cut your Jolly Ranchers or put them in a plastic baggie and crush them with a rolling pin.

Total Time 6 minutes

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees.
  2. Cut or break jolly ranchers into pieces. Like I said earlier, you can use scissors or put them in a plastic baggie and crush them with a rolling pin, your choice, just keep the colors separate.
  3. Determine what colors you want your mermaid tail lollipops to be and ill each mold with pieces of the candy to correspond with your choices, making sure to fill the entire mold with jolly ranchers.
  4. Place the mold on a sheet pan and bake for 5-6 minutes or until all jolly ranchers pieces are melted. 
  5. Remove from the oven and immediately place cake pop sticks on each tail. Since the sticks will be touching, place a strip of parchment paper over each row of sucker sticks.
  6. Cool on the counter for 10 minutes or place in the refrigerator for 5 minutes.
  7. Once cooled, remove each mermaid sucker from the mold. how to make mermaid tail lollipops photo tutorial collage
