Broken Glass Candy

This is from Southern Sideboards. This is an old candy thats been around for a long time. It is too hot for kids to help with the cooking part. But when it cools they love to break it into pieces. I love the cinnamon.

Serves:

2 1/4 pounds

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

1 c
water
3 3/4 c
granulated sugar
1 1/4 c
light karo
1 tsp
oil flavoring (available at stores in flavors such as cinnamon,anise, orange, wintergreen and many others)
a few drop
food coloring
sprinkle
powdered sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Sprinkle powdered sugar on 2 (11 x 15 inch) cookie sheets.
2
Combine sugar, Karo and water in heavy saucepan and stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Continue to cook, without stirring, until syrup reaches 290 F on candy thermometer.
3
Remove from heat and add food coloring to desired intensity and the desired oil flavoring. I like the flavor a little stronger so I increase the amount of flavoring alittle more. (Be careful with the cinnamon and stand back when you add it or it will clear your sinus passages for you)
4
Pour onto cookie sheets,cool and break into small pieces. I just let it cool and whack it with the bottom of a bottle it shatters easily. This looks very pretty in jars for Christmas gifts and to set out. Not to mention it taste great!
