See's Candy Butterscotch Lollipops
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup heavy cream
3 tablespoons light corn syrup
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
12 lollipop sticks
12 shot glass- size molds
Combine the first four ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat.
Stir until the sugar has dissolved. Let the mixture boil until it
reaches 310ºF on a cooking thermometer (this is called the
hard-crack stage), or until a small amount dropped in cold water
separates into hard, brittle threads. Stir in the vanilla, then
remove from the heat.
Coat the molds with nonstick spray and pour
the mixture in. (If you are using shot glasses, be sure to cool the
mixture first so that the glass won't crack.) Place a small piece of
aluminum foil over each mold and press a lollipop stick or popsicle
stick in the center. When cool, remove from molds.
