  2. When you’re ready to serve, remove the lollies from their moulds and dip into popping candy, if you like, or see tip, before tucking in.

These are very unusual lollies - a lot spicier than I expected so more for the adults than kids (I measured the grated ginger, not the ginger before I'd grated it, don't know if that was correct, but it was quite a lot) - and would probably make a quirky palate cleanser if you wanted to posh up a dinner party. Mine didn't come out as red as the picture, and I tried to use a silicon cake pop mould but the mixture just seeped out the middle so I only got semi-spheres. Would love to know how to get balls as it looks much better than mine! P.S. At the time of writing Waitrose sells popping candy (but not green)

I'd love to know what you used as a mould for these round beauties...melon baller and freeze on tray? Special spherical lolly mould?
