Homemade Cinnamon Hard Candy

Making recipes with cinnamon might remind you of the holidays, and if you want to learn how to make hard candy, check out this recipe for Homemade Cinnamon Hard Candy, which will put a fun twist on your usual Jolly Ranchers.

Ingredients
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup corn syrup
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon oil (drug stores and many markets carry this and many
  • other oils like anise, mint, wintergreen, clove, etc.)
  • 1/4 teaspoon red food coloring
Instructions
  1. Combine sugar, syrup, and water in a sauce pan. Boil without stirring over med-high heat until it reaches hard crack stage. Use a thermometer or very cold water.
     
  2. When you put about a teaspoon of the mixture in the cold water and let it sit for 10 or 15 seconds, you can take it out and it will break with a snap. Towards the end of the cooking time the mixture will thicken considerably and turn a yellowish color. It is essential to watch the pot at this point because it will burn easily and quickly. You may also stir it at this point to prevent scorching.
     
  3. When done, remove from heat and quickly stir in the oil and coloring.
     
  4. Pour into a 9-inch x 9-inch metal pan that has been lined with about 1/4 to 1/3 inch of powdered sugar.
     
  5. Let cool until the edges start to firm up and then immediately begin to cut the pieces from around the edges. Keep cutting around the edges as the candy hardens.
