Recipe courtesy of Sprinkle Bakes
Makes 12-15 pieces
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 dram flavoring oil (Rasberry, cherry, blueberry) USE THE WHOLE DRAM!
Any Colour food coloring
White food coloring *optional (I would recommend)
Disco dust *optional
Preheat oven to 185 degrees.
Spray a cookie sheet and large knife or pizza cutter with cooking spray.
In a large, 4 cup measuring class, mix sugar and corn syrup until it forms a thick paste. Cover with plastic wrap (top only) and microwave on high for 3 min 15 seconds.
Quickly stir mixture and cover with new plastic wrap. Microwave for another 3 min and 15 seconds.
Remove from microwave and with a clean spoon, stir mix.
When the mix stops boiling, add the colour and the flavor.
Spread onto baking sheet and spread by tilting the sheet. As the sugar starts to set, (very quickly) cut candy into strips (1/2 inch).Take cut strips and twist gently. Cool on a wire rack or clean paper towel.
I worked out of my oven, cutting on the wire tray while the oven kept the candy warm. If you take it out, it could harden quick.
*This recipe is meant to be prepared in a standard household microwave (600-700 watts). Mini microwaves and commercial microwaves are not recommended.
*Please use caution when making this recipe. Candy mixture is extremely hot when in liquid state.
Not a bad first try. I'm going to do this again once I get my white food gel. White food gel will stop the clear look and give it a nicer look I think. The kids loved these... tasted like cotton-candy! YUM!
