Homemade honey lollipops are so simple to make that you'll always have a batch on hand for a sweet tooth craving or sore throat. They are a perfect natural throat soothing remedy, and are so delicious.

Lavender + honey + vanilla is such a dreamy combination and these natural hard candies are free from any unusual and questionable ingredients, something store bought candy often contains.

How to use homemade honey lollipops:

  • As a honey tea spoon, just dip the candy into your tea and let it melt.
  • As a cough drop when you're under the weather. Just consume like you would a cough drop or lollipop.
  • As a party favor. Wrap the candy in beeswax wrap to reduce plastic waste and stay on theme for a honey themed first birthday party of baby shower for your older guests.

Ingredients you need to make these homemade honey lollipops:

  • Honey - if possible use Manuka honey. Manuka honey is the only type that can withstand heat and still maintain some health benefits. It's our favorite and the best for candy making.
  • Dried organic lavender - you want to make sure it's food grade so it's safe to eat.
  • Vanilla extract - for the beautiful vanilla flavor.
  • Cream of tartar - to help prevent the candy from cracking. Works like a charm!

Frequently asked questions about honey lollipops:

  1. How do I store them when they're done?

The honey lollipops will be slightly sticky, like any hard candy would be. I personally store all of ours in a storage container in the fridge for up to three months. Their stickiness does not cause them to stick together in a way I can not easily remove them in my experience.

2. How do I individually wrap them?

We never keep plastic wrap in the house, so I would use some of our beeswax wrap. They would work perfectly cut into small squares and wrapped around the pop. If you plan to do this as a party favor, use new fresh beeswax wraps!

3. How long do they keep for?

Store up to one month at room temperature. Or up to three months in the refrigerator. Or up to six months in the freezer.

4. Can I freeze these honey candies?

Yes. I would individually wrap each pop to prevent freezer burn.

5. Can I add or omit any flavors?

Absolutely. This recipe is completely adaptable to your liking and needs.

    Hello Sarah!
    These vanilla honey lavender lollipops look amazing, and I can’t wait to try them! How would I incorporate lemon into them, either with zest or juice? Thank you for sharing, I can’t wait to show my daughter and enjoy making them with her.

      Hi Diane! The lemon addition would be truly delicious! I recommend adding lemon zest, food grade lemon essential oil, or a little lemon extract. Happy new year to you and all of your loved ones.
