Making lollipops, Step 7

Once all the clips are removed, just lift the molds up off the lollipops. The molds for simple shapes, like the rounds shown at left,  spring open very easily. More intricate shaped molds like the car or train molds we make, may take a little coaxing to remove from the lollipop.

Always be careful not to force the mold open too wide and with too much force as this will decrease the useful life if the mold. We are still using molds made over 25 years ago and they still look great and make great looking lollipops! The molds are dishwasher safe and can be used over and over. TIP: you can store your molds in a 5 quart plastic ice cream bucket or other plastic container with a snap on lid. This will protect your molds and clips between uses.
