  • Coat a cookie sheet with cooking spray.
  • Also spray a metal spatula (and yes it matters, goo will stick to all others and make it impossible to work with)
  • set aside cookie sheet and spatula.

  • Put sugar and corn syrup into a large glass microwavable bowl.
  • Stir mixture - will be very thick but will change when heated.
