Lollipop Guild: Homemade Blow-Pops

As candy-making becomes more popular, more people are starting to experiment by making their own lollipops at home. By throwing bubble gum and some gelatin flavoring into the mix, we found it was easy not only to make lollipops at home, but to make the well-liked Blow Pops at home as well. With a little ribbon around a plastic wrapper, these pops are dessert party perfect.

There is much to celebrate in the wonderful world of Oz! The Wizard of Oz not only celebrates its 75 anniversary this year, but in honor of the occasion, it's been re-released in IMAX 3D today for just one week.

This epic moment in movie history inspired us to create a Oz-approved menu for a dessert party that Dorothy, the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion and the Scarecrow would all enjoy. Our dessert picks are themed for the movie and could be set up in groups on tables around your living room or yard.

Check out the slideshow above to discover the perfect menu for your Wizard of Oz dessert party.
