White Chocolate Glaze (for 1 recipe of pops) and Dark Chocolate Glaze (for 1 recipe of pops)

  1. Melt each chocolate in a separate double boiler. Set aside. If desired, colour the melted white chocolate with a few drops of food colouring.

Assembly

  1. Dip the end of a lollipop stick in one of the chocolate glazes and insert it in a prepared ball.
  2. Now dip the ball into one of the glazes, twist it around so any excess chocolate drips off and set the pop in a styrofoam or other base. Repeat with the remaining balls.
  3. Garnish according to your fancy.

More about Maple

Maple syrup comes in four classifications, according to colour and taste.

At the start of sugaring season, syrup is generally clear, with a lightly sweet taste. It becomes darker and caramelized as the season goes on.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter contains no butter or dairy.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree… and that’s all.
