Make Hard Candy From Mix

Making Hard Candy

Hard Candy

  1. To ensure Hard Candy Mix cooks evenly, pour your hard candy mixture into a high sided, heavy bottomed pot. Add 1/3 C (2.4 oz/68g) water to 12 oz. hard candy mix to achieve the texture of wet sand. Cook on medium high heat.
  2. Agitate with wooden spoon continuously until mixture comes to a boil. When mixture starts boiling, stop stirring. Stirring before boil helps prevent crystallization. Stirring after boil causes crystallization.
  3. Remove foam from top of mixture by scooping out with a strainer or spoon. Removing this foam will improve the appearance of the finished product.
  4. Wash down sides of pot with clean moistened pastry brush.
  5. When mixture reaches 250 degrees Fahrenheit (121 degrees Celsius) add in color/flavor solution, if desired. Lightly swirl to mix. Return to heat. Finish cooking to 300-320 degrees Fahrenheit (149-160 degrees Celsius).
  6. Let mixture cool and thicken slightly, then pour onto mat or into mold, pouring close to the surface to avoid air bubbles.
  7. Let set at room temperature and do not unmold until candy itself is room temperature.
