I've wanted to make hard candy for a while now, so tonight I finally did it! I googled hard candy and came up with this recipe for lollipops:
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup water
3/4 tsp flavor

All you do is mix the sugar, H2O and corn syrup together in a sauce pan until the sugar melts and then you just let it boil, the recipe said to pull the mixture off the heat and add the flavor and color at 295 degree F, (hard crack) but my candy thermometer says hard crack is 310 degrees F. I listened to my candy thermometer and everything turned out all right! I made Cinnamon Hearts, Berry suckers and Watermellon snack shapes. This was the first time I have ever used coloring other than food coloring, the red was ok, but when I tried to make purple for the suckers I used way too much blue and they ended up turning green..eww! They look gross but taste super yummy!

The whole lot of them!

Let the sugar high begin!

These are super cute. I always wanted to try and make some but it always seemed super hard. Now I'm gonna give it a try
