Preparation / Directions:
Prepare a saucepan with cooking spray. Add sugar, corn syrup, and water. Bring to a boil; stirring constantly until sugar dissolves. Cook to hard-ball stage or until 300 degrees on candy thermometer. Remove from heat; add extract and food coloring. Cool to 200 on candy thermometer. Meanwhile, spray inside of Christmas molds well with cooking spray. Using a wooden spoon, push cooled mixture into molds. Working fast. Cool until firm.
For the Christmas Candy Molds, I made half the candy using peppermint extract with green food coloring and the other half with lemon extract and yellow food coloring. They turned out very well but you will have to work fast!.
