    Made my first maple suckers or lollipops last night,one question is about bagging them,do you inflate the small bag somewhat so the sucker is not against it,and if so how?

    Made a batch of these last night. Many thanks to all who provided input.

    Anyone looking to try these, I'll add that the liquid comes to a boil easily and quickly, so use medium/low or low heat. By the time I reached 240+ I had the burner on low/simmer to keep the boil going.

    To bag them, I just gave the bag a shake to open it up and just tried to be careful not to touch the sides putting it in.

    Resurrecting an old thread here. How do you guys package these lollipops? Sean and Bruce above mention bags... Where do you get them and how are they sealed?

    Thanks in advance!

    I use heat seal bags. The whole thing stick and all goes in the bag. I usually shop around when I need them. For a long time, Staples had the best deal, but they stopped carrying them. You'll find cheap bags, but they'll nail you on the shipping. I think my last order went to U-line.
