    I just found this on food tv by Sandra Lee - Semi-homemade. Sounds easy and fun.

    Cherry Lollipops

    3/4 cup granulated sugar
    1/2 cup light corn syrup
    1/4 cup butter
    1 (3-ounce) box cherry gelatin dessert mix
    Nonstick cooking spray
    Special Equipment:
    20 (4-inch) lollipop sticks
    Metal tablespoon-size measuring spoon
    Candy thermometer

    Butter 2 large baking sheets. Arrange 10 lollipop sticks on each baking sheet, spacing them evenly apart. Stir sugar, corn syrup, and butter in small saucepan over low heat until sugar has dissolved. Slowly bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Continue cooking for 7 minutes, or until candy thermometer registers 275 degrees F. Stir in gelatin until smooth. Using a metal tablespoon and working quickly, spoon syrup over 1 end of each lollipop stick. Cool completely. Wrap each lollipop in plastic wrap and store in an airtight container.
