DIRECTIONS

  • In a heavy-bottomed pot, bring the sugar, water, and vinegar to a medium boil.
  • Stir carefully so all the sugar is dissolved.
  • Brush down the sides with a pastry brush dipped in water if crystals begin to form.
  • Cook for atleast 20 minutes.
  • Add the butter and cook for another 10 minutes until you reach the "crack" stage on the candy thermometer (290 degrees).
  • At this point, when a bit of the mixture is dropped into cold water, it instantly turns brittle.
  • Meanwhile prepare a muffin tin by greasing well with vegetable shortening. These will serve as your moulds.
  • Remove the molten candy from the stove and stir in the food coloring and flavouring of your choice.
  • Now pour 1/8 to 1/4 inch of candy into each muffin cup.
  • Cool completely.
  • When cooled, turn upside down and give a few taps on the bottom and the candies should pop out.
  • Wrap each in waxed paper.
