These are great!! I made them exactly as the recipe says, I did have to bake them a little longer, maybe 10-11 minutes. I almost made them smaller, so I got about 48 lollipops. They are wonderful! Soft and chewy, just perfect. My son's class will love them!!!! Oh, I also baked them on stoneware, and you do have to remove them to a cooling rack within a minute or they begin to stick a little.
