Makes approximately 1 pound

What You Need:

What You Do:

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar, corn syrup, and water and gently stir until sugar dissolves. Using a candy thermometer, heat mixture to 250 degrees, then add food coloring. Boil mixture until the candy thermometer reaches 300 degrees. Remove from the heat.
