DIRECTIONS

  • In a large (about 1 gallon) pot mix together the sugar, salt, water and corn syrup.
  • Cook to a boil and 250 degrees or hard ball stage. You can stir as it somes to a boil of just once in awhile as it comes to a boil. I've never had a problem doing it either way.
  • While this mixture is boiling beat the egg whites to stiff peaks in your mixer.
  • When your boiling sugar mixture is ready very very slowly pour and mix it into the egg mixture in a slow stream on medium speed until it is all inches.
  • Let this mix for two mintues and then bring the speed down to slow and add it the extract and food coloring.
  • Continue mixing and a medium high speed until the candy starts to lose it's gloss and thicken up.
  • Turn off mixer and drop spoonfuls onto wax paper or a greased surface.
