I found this recipe several years ago when I purchased some oil flavoring for candy making. This is SUCH an easy recipe. Three ingredients, a microwave, and about 8 minutes plus cooling time. That's it! My kids are begging to make more tomorrow.
1 c. granulated sugar
1/2 c. light corn syrup
1/2 dram (1/2 tsp) flavoring oil (or as desired)
Food color - optional
Powdered sugar - optional
Thoroughly mix sugar and corn syrup in a 4 cup microwave safe glass bowl or measuring cup.
Cover with plastic wrap.
Microwave on high for 3.10 minutes. Remove from microwave and carefully remove plastic wrap.
Quickly stir the sugar mixture and then cover with a NEW sheet of plastic wrap.
Microwave on high for 3.10 minutes. Remove from microwave and carefully remove plastic wrap and stir. (Use caution to avoid rising steam).
Stir in coloring and then flavoring.
Pour syrup quickly, but carefully, into lightly oiled lolipop molds, onto greased cookie sheet, or a cookie sheet covered with a layer of powdered sugar.
Just before candy has completely cooled, score or use large knife and cutting board to cut the candy into squares. OR wait until it has thoroughly cooled, and then simply break it into bite sized pieces.
Let candy cool until hardened. Do not put in refrigerator.
Dusting with powdered sugar keeps it from sticking.
Store in airtight container.
