Why I Love This Recipe

I have made this for years around the holidays


Ingredients You'll Need

3 ¾ cups sugar
1 ½ cups light corn syrup
1 cup water
½-1 tsp flavoring oil
Food coloring
Powdered sugar (Optional)


Directions

Mix first 3 ingredients in a large saucepan. Stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Boil, without stirring, until temperature reaches 310 degrees F or until drop of syrup form hard brittle threads in cold water. Remove from heat. After boiling has ceased, stir in flavoring and coloring. Pour onto lightly greased cookie sheet. Cool. Break into pieces. Store in airtight containers. Makes in excess of 2 pounds.


You can roll in powder sugar to keep it from sticking together.
