Harry Potter Acid Pops Recipe

If you’re looking for the most magically-authentic version of Acid Pops from Harry Potter & the world of magic available, then look no further! If you don’t know what Aicd Pops are, boy are you in for a treat!

Acid Pops are one of the many sweets found at Honeydukes Sweetshop in Hogsmeade. They bear an uncanny resemblance to what Muggles refer to as “Lollipops”, with one major difference. Acid Pops are known to cause or burn holes right through your tongue. Luckily enough however, we have found the Acid Pops recipe that lacks the magic to do such a thing – or does it?

Below you will find our Acid Pops Recipe that is sure to keep your young Witches, Wizards and Muggles happy for years to come.

The Harry Potter Acid Pops Recipe


Lollipop Molds
Nonstick Cooking Spray
Lollipop Sticks
1 Cup Sugar
1 and 1/2 Cup of Flavored Extract (We recommend lemon or vanilla)
Food Coloring (Optional)
1/2 Cup Light Corn Syrup
1/4 Cup Water


Nerds Candy
Pop Rocks


The information below contains instructions on how to make the Base Lollipops in our Acid Pops Recipe

1.) Gather your supplies together and prepare your lollipop molds by spraying them with non-stick cooking spray. (Wipe them out with paper-towels so only a thin layer of oil is left.)
2.) Insert the lollipop sticks into the molds.
3.) Next, you will combine the sugar, corn syrup, and water in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.
4.) Make sure to stir until the sugar dissolves, then brush down the sides of the pan with a wet pastry brush.
5.) Once boiling, insert a candy thermometer. Allow mixture to boil, without stirring, until candy reaches 300 F (149 C). This is called the hard crack stage.
6.) Now you will remove the saucepan from the heat and allow it till sit until it completely stops boiling or bubbling.
7.) Ladle the candy into the lollipop molds while making sure to cover the back of the stick.
8.) Allow to cool and remove once the lollipops have become completely hardened.

Acid Pops Topping Instructions

The information below contains instructions on how to top your base lollipop.

1.) Gather 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of water with 1/4th more extract.
2.) Using a saucepan combine sugar, water and extract together on low simmer until it has completely melted.
3.) Remove saucepan from heat and allow to cool, but not completely.
4.) While your sauce is cooling fill two bowls with nerds and pop-rocks.
5.) Before your mixture is completely cooled and is still thick and tacky, dip your lollipops into it.
6.) After dipping your lollipops into the mixture also dip them into your choice of nerds or Pop Rocks.

Note: We recommend using different colors for the most flavorful explosion in your mouth!
