Stained Glass Candy Recipe

Christmas time means sweet time!

Here’s a really easy candy that you can make this year that your family will love. I think it makes a nice refreshing break from the traditional cookie too. It’s pretty too!

Here’s the ingredients:

Powdered Sugar

2 cups Granulated Sugar

1 cup Water

3/4 cup Corn Syrup

1/2 tsp Flavor Oil or Extract

Food Color

Candy Thermometer

Line a cookie sheet with foil and dust with powdered sugar.

Heat sugar, corn syrup and water in a heavy sauce pan. Stir to dissolve. Using the Candy Thermometer to monitor the heat, bring it to a boiling temp of 300-310.

Remove the pan from the heat and add the flavor and color. Pour the hot candy into the prepared pan. Allow it to cool completely before and breaking into pieces.

That’s it!

I got a bit heavy on my coloring here. This is Lemon Flavor.

For this one I used a combination of peppermint and mint. Perfect!
