- In a thick-bottomed saucepan, bring butter and maple syrup to a boil. Boil until candy thermometer shows 146 °C (295 °F), then remove from heat.
- Lay a large sheet of parchment paper on a table or countertop, then pour little circles of syrup.
- Quickly place a lollipop stick in the centre of each circle, then leave to harden.
Lollipop molds can also be used following the same cooking method.
Store lollipops in an airtight container in a cool and dry place.
