Drema's "Stained Glass" Candy
You can adjust how hot you want your candy by increasing or decreasing the "cinnamon oil".
Be careful when making this as the cinnamon when added can burn your senses and eyes so use precaution when you get ready to add the oil!
Enjoy! This makes a beautiful and thoughtful gift around the holidays. I give it away in tall glass jars with the broken pieces in it!
This was shared with me many years ago by a special family member, Novella Saunders,from Lexington NC.

Allow to cool thorougly. This will not take long.
Once the candy is throughly cooled and hardened, cover the tip of hammer and lightly tap so that large pieces are broken. These are your stained glass pieces and spicy! Place the colored pieces into jar and give to the cinnamon lovers in your family!
