Candy-making is a tricky thing. It involves a thermometer, which suggests precision is necessary. Not “suggests,” precision IS necessary. I’m not precise. So I very much appreciate shortcut candymaking. All of these lollipops need no thermometer to make, leave no impossible-to-clean-sticky mess on pans, and they are easy even to do with the kids.
I made these striped lollies from Jolly Ranchers, yikes, four years ago! and they were a huge hit, HERE at the decorated cookie.
This is incredible. A huge lollipop from candy canes, at Doodle Craft.

These are actually made by my daughter. I use this method a lot with her and her friends. Find them HERE, and use any color candy melts.
The same concept, with chocolate (I’ve done this a lot, too, so yummy and easy), HERE at Home Made Simple.
