Fisherman's friend lolly

An awesome twist on the traditional mint that accompanies the bill at many a restaurant. The fondant and glucose come together in this candy to create a crystal-clear caramel and a confectionery that stays dry. This lolly has an excellent bite and the caramel will not stick to your teeth.

Fisherman’s Friend

Preparation method

  • Heat the fondant and glucose to 160°C and allow this to stand until the syrup is thick but still liquid.
  • In the meantime, use a coffee grinder or food processor to finely grind a few Fisherman's Friend lozenges.
  • Take a few wooden skewers and drag the back end of the skewers through the sugar and place on a silicone mat, leaving sufficient space between each skewer.
  • Sprinkle a little of the ground sweets over the silicone mat.
  • Dip a spoon into the caramel.
  • Create circular movements as you drip down the caramel to create a rustic-shaped lolly.
  • Sprinkle more of the ground Fisherman's Friend lozenges over the sugar and allow it to harden.
  • Store the lollies in an air-tight container with some silicone granules to keep them dry.

Serving suggestions

  • As a refreshing sweet following a meal.
  • As part of a dessert.
