Cinnamon Hard Candy Recipe | One of the basketball grandmas makes these and brings them to every game. We all love them. She pours the candy into tiny ice cube molds . . . .


Ingredients:
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon red food coloring


Directions:
  1. In a large heavy saucepan, combine sugar, water and corn syrup. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Cover and cook for 3 minutes. Uncover and cook over medium-high heat, without stirring, until a candy thermometer reads 310° (hard-crack stage). Remove from the heat; stir in oil and food coloring, keeping face away from the mixture as the odor with be very strong. 
  2. Immediately pour onto a greased baking sheet. Quickly spread into a 13-in. x 9-in. rectangle. Using a sharp knife, score into 1-in. squares. Re-cut rectangle along scored lines until candy is cut into squares. Let stand at room temperature until dry. Separate into squares, using a knife if necessary. Yield: 1 pound.

Editor's Note:
Cinnamon oil can be found in some pharmacies or at kitchen and cake decorating supply stores. 

Editor's Note:
We recommend that you test your candy thermometer before each use by bringing water to a boil; the thermometer should read 212°. Adjust your recipe temperature up or down based on your test . . . .
