Set aside.


Stir together sugar, corn syrup and whipping cream in heavy 2-quart saucepan.


Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until sugar is dissolved.

Continue cooking, stirring frequently, until mixture reaches 300°F. on candy thermometer or until syrup, when dropped into very cold water, separates into threads which are hard and brittle. (Bulb of candy thermometer should not rest on bottom of saucepan.)
