Author Liz Mays

Ingredients

  • Powdered sugar used for lining the foil or parchment paper
  • 3 3/4 cups white sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups light corn syrup
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons gourmet flavoring of your choice cinnamon oil, strawberry oil, orange oil, etc.
  • 1 teaspoon food coloring that goes with your flavor choice

Instructions

  1. Line a jelly roll pan with aluminum foil, and sprinkle with a layer of powdered sugar.
  2. In a large saucepan, combine the white sugar, corn syrup, and water, and stir continuously over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves.
  3. Continue boiling without stirring. When candy thermometer reaches approximately 260 degrees F, drop in flavoring and food coloring, and continue boiling until temperature reaches 300-310 degrees F.

  4. Let candy cool and harden. Crack into pieces, and store in an airtight container.

Recipe Notes

To remove hard candy residue from pan, fill with hot water and let sit in sink. The sugar will dissolve, and you can just pour the liquid out.
