This is my Dad's recipe he showed me how to make it and it has been a family tradition to make the candy every year. It is a very good candy for the holidays.
in a large heavy sauce pan combine sugar, corn syrup, and water. Cook on medium high heat until candy thermometer reads 300 degrees(hard crack stage) stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat stir in oil and food coloring keeping face away from mixture as odor is very strong. Immediediately pour onto an oil cookie sheet or i use a wax paper covered cookie sheet.
Cool completely and break into pieces dust with powdered sugar and enjoy. Store in airtight containers.
