Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

1 cup sugar
1/3 cup brewed coffee
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon baking cocoa
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
12 wooden lollipop sticks
Plastic wrap
Red & green ribbons

Instructions

In a saucepan, combine sugar, coffee, corn syrup, cocoa and cinnamon. Cook over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved, stirring constantly. Cook over medium heat, without stirring, until a candy thermometer reads 290 degrees (soft crack stage), about 7 minutes. Remove from heat. Immediately stir in vanilla, then pour into a greased 2-cup heat-proof glass measuring cup. Working quickly, pour tablespoonfuls into circles on a greased baking sheet and lay a stick in each circle. Cool until hard. When cool, wrap with plastic wrap and tie off with ribbon. Store in airtight container. Yield: about 1 dozen

1989 -- 25 years ago: When the new Moline High School was built in 1958, along with it were plans to construct a football field in the bowl near 34th Street on the campus. Wednesday afternoon, more than 30 years later, the Moline Board of Education Athletic Board sent the ball rolling toward the possible construction of that field by asking superintendent Richard Hennigan to take to the board of education a proposal to hire a consultant.
