    Melted Sugar Glue for Candy Houses
    My sugar keeps crystalizing before it gets to the point where when it cools it stays hard, what could I be doing wrong??

    You are not making sure all of the sugar crystals are completely dissolved. If even one sugar granule remains, the melted sugar will crystallize again. icon_sad.gif

    Make sure to wipe down the sides of the pan (with a pastry brush wet with water) to remove/melt any sugar granules that are sticking to the sides of the pan while making the syrup.

    You can also add a bit (2 tsp) of light corn syrup to the sugar syrup. This changes the structure of the granulated sugar so that crystals do not form.
