Don't have hard candy molds?
You can make hard candy lollipops without a candy mold by laying lollipop sticks on a lightly oiled cookie sheet (or line a cookie sheet with a silicone parchment sheet). Just pour the syrup over the lollipop sticks using a spoon to control the flow.

Make candy drops by dropping teaspoons of syrup on a cookie sheet that is lightly oiled or lined with silicone parchment paper.
