Like Heidi, I did the same: Amanda's recipe calls for 3 cups of granulated sugar and 3 cups of water, but I'm not likely going to need that much, it would make more pops than we could typically eat. I use 1 cup instead, just know if you want to make a larger batch, you can scale up 1:1.
Very carefully dip each citrus segment into the hot syrup, coating thoroughly.
***The syrup will burn you on contact, so be extra careful and deliberate here.
Repeat with the remaining skewers, immediately rolling in your toppings before resting on the parchment paper.
