I am one of those crazy people who enjoys sour things. I love Lemonheads and can’t get enough of them. But, as a college student, I’m not willing to pay $1.79 for a small box of these bad boys. Instead, I made my own and I only spent $4.62 for a batch of 24, which are much larger than they are when store-bought. These tasty sweets will keep you from ever eating store-bought Lemonheads again.
Two Ingredient DIY Lemonheads

Slice each lemon in half. Then squeeze each lemon into a measuring cup. Continue to juice your lemons until you have approximately 1 cup of lemon juice.
Pour sugar into a medium-sized mixing bowl. Mix in lemon juice until the sugar dissolves.
Boil this mixture until it reaches the consistency of thick syrup.
#SpoonTip: A good way to check the syrup is to drop a small drop in cold water, it should appear brittle.
Coat a mini-muffin baking sheet with cooking spray. Pour the heated mixture into each mini-muffin mold. For smaller Lemonheads, fill the molds less than half-way full. For larger Lemonheads, fill the molds more than half-way full.
#SpoonTip: Smaller Lemonheads will harden faster.
Let the Lemonheads cool until they harden. Once hardened, the lemon drop candies are ready for consumption.
