National Jelly Bean Day and Earth Day Lollies

April 22, 2016, National Jelly Bean Day and Earth Day collide! How cool is that?

Did you know there is only one variety of blue Jelly Belly jelly beans? Well, I did not. That is until after getting home with my ten dollar bag of former President Reagan's favorite candy.

So my ever sweet hubby surprised me by leaving work and bringing me nine bags containing the two flavors I would need for my lollipops! I love that man!
You will need hard Jolly Ranchers, Jelly Belly Jelly Beans, lollipop sticks and parchment paper.
I used: blue raspberry Jolly Ranchers,
berry blue Jelly Belly beans,
green apple Jolly Ranchers,
and sour apple Jelly Belly beans

Place Jolly Ranchers on parchment lined baking pan and bake @ 275 for 7 minutes.
Immediately after removing from oven, insert lollipop stick and place jelly beans. Let sit until cool.

These are so easy to make and I made several for my grandkiddos. They are so tasty too!
Well! That was fun!

Have a sweet day, Karen  :o)


  1. What a great hubby to bring you the needed jelly beans...maybe he knew a few of these cute lollipops would be for him??
