Hard rock candy

My cousin jokes that my Aunt would use molds for the candy she shared with friends, but the candy for the family
was like broken shards of glass.


  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 drop cinnamon, oil
  • food coloring


  1. Lightly grease one 12x18 inch or larger baking sheet.
  2. In a large heavy saucepan, combine the water, sugar and corn syrup. Heat over high, stirring constantly with a
    heat resistant spoon, until all sugar is dissolved. Stop stirring and bring to a boil. Boil until a candy thermometer reads 310 degrees F (154 degrees C). Remove from heat.
  3. When bubbling has ceased, stir in the flavoring and a food coloring. Spread into the prepared pan so that the candy is no more than 1/4 inch thick. Cool for 45 minutes in the refrigerator. Remove from refrigerator, crack into
    pieces and enjoy!
