      I requested this recipe when I couldn't find my own. It was just what I needed. So simple and so good. Looks great in a small canning jar to be given as a gift. I used flavor oils: lemonade, licorice, and cran-raspberry.

      This is great candy and very easy. Watch out if using cinnamon oil or other equally aromatic oil - the vapor can be irritating to eyes, etc. when you first put it in (this could be a duh, but I'm a novice!). Thanks for a keeper.

      I needed a "coal" recipe for a gag Christmas gift, and tried this out. I used black Wilton paste coloring, and strawberry extract for flavor. I think I would increase the strawberry extract from the two tsp called for, as there was very little flavor. After breaking up the candy into "rocks", I liberally dusted them with powdered sugar, and they really look like pieces of coal!
