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
Combine sugar, water, and corn syrup in a saucepan. Stir constantly. Set candy thermometer on pan.
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.
Let it rest, it will harden. LET COMPLETELY COOL!!!
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).
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.
