Growing up, there was a woman in the neighborhood who always made homemade suckers during the holidays. It's not just that I love to eat them, but that burning of cinnamon around my mouth is a particular recollection that warms not just my mouth. I inherited my parent's sucker molds. Ryan found them when he was digging through the Christmas bins in search of music. I bought some new flavors at Hobby Lobby (I find something new every time I go) and Divine and I made three batches.

The beloved queen sucker molds
I went crazy
The burning of my mouth was just like I remembered
