Introduction: Glass Candy

Glass Candy Ingredients
3 cups sugar
1 cup water
1 cup white corn syrup
1 tbsp flavoring or extract
Few drops food coloring

Step 1:

Combine sugar, water, and corn syrup in a saucepan. Stir constantly. Set candy thermometer on pan.

Step 2:

Once candy thermometer reaches 300 degrees (hard crack) add in flavoring and coloring ( two or three drops). Stir immediately and pour into metal a pan or two pans( depending on how thick you want the candy pieces to be). Do NOT use glassware.

Step 3:

Let it rest, it will harden. LET COMPLETELY COOL!!!

Step 4:

Either drop pan on the floor from mid hip or push up on the bottom of pan to crack the glass into pieces. ( if dropping on floor, may want to go outside to avoid a mess).

Step 5:

Once candy is in pieces you can dust with powdered sugar to prevent it from sticking together or just leave it plain as I did here for cake topping.

    This is like making peanut brittle, but without adding the soda or peanuts at the end.
