Ingredients

1 cup sugar
1/3 cup brewed coffee
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon baking cocoa
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
12 wooden lollipop sticks
Plastic wrap

Instructions

In a saucepan, combine sugar, coffee, corn syrup, cocoa and cinnamon. Cook over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved, stirring constantly. Cook over medium heat, without stirring, until a candy thermometer reads 290 degrees (soft crack stage), about 7 minutes. Remove from heat. Immediately stir in vanilla, then pour into a greased 2-cup heat-proof glass measuring cup. Working quickly, pour tablespoonfuls into circles on a greased baking sheet and lay a stick in each circle. Cool until hard. When cool, wrap with plastic wrap and tie off with ribbon. Store in airtight container. Yield: about 1 dozen
