DIRECTIONS

  • You will need a candy thermometer.
  • Mix first 3 ingredients in large saucepan.
  • Stir over heat until sugar dissolves.
  • Bring to a boil and stop stirring.
  • Continue to boil until temperature reaches 310 degrees F, it may take 20- 30 minutes.
  • Remove from heat.
  • After boiling has stopped, stir in extract& coloring of choice.
  • Quickly, spread out onto a LIGHTLY greased baking sheet so that the candy is no more than 1/4 inch thick.
  • Candy does not need to touch all edges of baking sheet.
  • Cool, then break into pieces.
  • Store in an air-tight container.
  • SPECIAL NOTE: After reaching 310 degrees, I like to put 1/2 of mixture in a separate kettle, so that I can make two different colors and/or flavors.
