HARD CANDY



Hard Candy image

Every evening for a week in December, my husband and I mix up several batches of this soothing candy. When we finish, we have all our favorite flavors and a rainbow of colors. The pieces look lovely in a clear candy dish or jar.

Categories     Desserts     Candy Recipes

Time 45m

Yield 16

Number Of Ingredients 6

½ cup confectioners' sugar for dusting
2 cups white sugar
1 cup water
⅔ cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon peppermint oil, or other flavored oil
1 teaspoon any color food coloring

Steps:

  • Generously coat a cookie sheet with confectioners' sugar, and set aside.
  • In a heavy bottomed saucepan, stir together the white sugar, water and corn syrup until sugar has dissolved. Bring to a boil over medium-high and cook to a temperature of 300 to 310 degrees F (149 to 154 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms hard, brittle threads. Remove from heat, and stir in the flavored oil and food coloring.
  • Immediately pour the sugar mixture onto the prepared cookie sheet in a thin stream (this helps it cool). When the candy is cool enough for the outer edge to hold its shape, cut into bite size pieces with scissors. Let cool completely, then store in an airtight container.

HARD CANDY



Hard Candy image

This is a recipe that my Grandma and I made growing up. I continue today to make this every Christmas. Great to give as a gift or just have sitting around a grab when you want one. Enjoy

Provided by Mayniac May Family

Categories     Candy

Time 40m

Yield 20 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 7

1 cup Karo syrup
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon of flavoring candy oil (more or less to your taste)
food coloring (to desired color)
confectioners' sugar
butter

Steps:

  • Mix syrup, sugar and water.
  • Bring to hard/crack boil on candy thermometer.
  • Stir in Candy oil and food coloring. (watch about the steam coming off of the mixture, it can really get you).
  • Butter the heat resistant surface you will be working on. (She had a marble candy board, I use a cookie sheet).
  • When cool enough to touch with hands (but not too cool or it will be too late), butter you hands and kitchen scissors and begin cutting pieces with scissors.
  • Put pieces in a bowl of confection sugar (coats each piece from sticking to one another) and when you get alot in the bowl, skake it thru a stainer to get excess off.
  • This is a very, very fast paced thing! We always cut it to make small pieces, and we bent in any sharp edges to make it easier for the kids. I have poured it into the cookie sheet and as it sets up, you scour it with a pizza cutter. When completely cooled you can break it apart. It all depends on whether I have help or not.
