making rainbows.

It's been rainy and cloudy!
Wet and grey.
I need a little color.
I can't get these off of my mind!

As soon as the humidity goes down, I am going to whip out a batch of these!
They are great enjoyed outside. The perfect addition to a sunny day.


Emily's free-form rainbow lollies
2 cups of sugar
2/3 cup of corn syrup
2/3 cup of water
1/2 t orange extract
food coloring (red, yellow, and blue)
.
Lightly spray a cookie sheet with pam, or lightly oil. Place lollipop sticks in rows leaving 2 inches of space in between.Combine sugar, syrup, and water in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Without stirring, cook until mixture reaches 305 degrees. Set up an ice bath in the sink. When the mixture is done, dip the bottom of the saucepan into the ice bath for 10 seconds to stop cooking process. Stir in extract. Divide sugar mixture into 3 separate bowls. Color one bowl with the red food coloring, one with the yellow, and one with the blue.Spoon the mixture over the lollipop sticks, creating free form designs by mixing colors. Let harden and enjoy.

This is a little bit freaky....I guess Katiehojo and I are on the same wavelengths today....I was hoping for your dutch baby recipe too!!!!! I googled it...but I googled "doughboy"...NOT the same thing :( Then, I read Katie's comment and googled dutch baby and I think I found it on Cooks.com??? I'm gonna give it a try. I have high hopes...the one I made with your recipe was super-duper!!!!
