2 cups of sugar
1 1/2 cups water with 1 tsp salt mixed in
1 cup light corn syrup
2 teaspoons of glycerin
Combine in a HEAVY saucepan and boil.
Stir regularly, but doesn't have to be constantly.
Use candy thermometer and boil it to 260 degrees...
(not quite to soft crack)
2 tbsp butter
flavoring--we used creme de methe for a minty treat!
Let cool in saucepan a few minutes.
Then pour out onto a greased cookie sheet or a silpat.
We put 1 drop of food coloring on each
sheet so we could swirl the colors.
Let the sauce cool to the touch.
Break off a piece and begin pulling!
It'll make a sticky mess!
into pieces on freezer paper...shiny side up!
Then rolled them like tootsie rolls!
It made 5 dozen pieces...and we ate a bunch...so it should make 6 dozen!
Maybe for the kids to give their friends!
And you could use these tags! :)
Linking up to THESE parties this week!
