    Basic Hard Candy

    I figure food coloring can be added and maybe an oil flavoring mixed with ground chiles or even chopped fresh ones (like the "screamin meanies" from Mo Hotta Mo Betta?). So far I have not found anything resembling a gummy bear recipe -sorry!

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup Karo Syrup (light)
  • Boil to the crack stage (past hard-ball) which will take about 30 minutes. Remove from the stove and add a few drops of food coloring (if wanted) and a few drops of oil flavoring (used to be able to get them at drug stores but now you have to find specialty shops.)

    Pour into molds or, if not making lollipops, pour into a small shallow pan (greased) such as an old-fashioned ice cube tray with the mechinism removed. Let harden and pop out of molds or, if not using molds,press into pieces with a knife as it hardens, working it over and over. When cool enough to take out of the pan, crack pieces off.
