I made homemade lollipops and they are set, but still sticky. How can I dry them, or what I can do so that when I wrap them they won't stick to the wrappers?

As far as I know, drying is not necessary the option. In general, lollipops from the industry are coated with some edible powder, like starch. This prevents the sticking part.


In case of lollipops you want to use either sugar powder, starch or bees wax.


You could use corn starch/corn flour, confectioners' sugar/icing sugar, or a combination of the two and just give it a light dusting.
