DIRECTIONS

  • Line a baking sheet with foil and spray the foil with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a medium saucepan, combine the water, corn syrup and granulated sugar. Place the pan over medium-high heat and stir until the sugar dissolves.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil. As soon as mixture comes to a boil, stop stirring and brush down the sides with a wet pastry brush to prevent sugar crystals from forming. Insert a candy thermometer.
  • Continue to cook the candy without stirring until it reads exactly 285 degrees F on the thermometer. Do not overcook it or it will start to take on a caramel color and your candy might turn green!
  • Take the pan off the heat and let it sit just until bubbles stop breaking on the surface. Add the flavoring of choice and a drop of food coloring. Stir everything together.
  • Pour the candy onto the prepped baking sheet and tilt it so that it runs into a thin layer. Let it set completely at room temperature.
  • Once candy is set, break it into small pieces by hand.
  • For the full “crystal meth” experience, place the candy pieces in medium zip-lock bags and crush them lightly with a rolling pin. Store in airtight containers.
