Recipe Tools


1. In a saucepan, blend sugar, corn syrup, and water.

2. Bring to a boil over high heat until mixture reaches 290 degrees Fahrenheit.

3. Stir frequently with a metal (not wood) spoon.

4. Remove pan from heat. Allow to stand until bubbles have simmered down.

5. Add flavoring and color, as desired. Too much stirring will cause the syrup to solidify into a hard sugary lump.

6. Mold into desired shapes in Apollo Hard Candy Molds sprayed lightly with a nonstick vegetable oil spray.

7. Work fast. If mixture becomes too cold and thick, it may be warmed for a few seconds in a microwave.

8. When hard candies are completely cooled, store them in airtight containers or place them, individually, in 3- by 5-inch plastic sucker bags.
