To make your prom experience more memorable for everyone, preparedness is key. Here are a few tips for the big night:

• Make sure you have enough money in case of emergencies.

• Abstain from any drugs and alcohol that may be secretly presented at prom or the after party.

• Set up a curfew time with your parents so they know when to expect you home.

• Have an emergency contact list stored in your phone.

Choose your own color and flavor combinations for these luscious homemade lollipops. For each, place three Jolly Rancher hard candies side by side on a baking sheet that’s been covered with foil then topped with parchment paper. Leave space on the sheet for a lollipop stick. Bake at 275 degrees for about 6 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and immediately place the stick into the candy, rolling it a bit to ensure a good bond. Let the candy cool.
