Sugar candy



Ingredients: (Sugar candy)

1½ tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon white or brown sugar
a pinch of baking soda

Directions: (Sugar candy)

  1. Place sugar in a stainless steel ladle and heat it over medium heat until it starts to melt.
  2. Stir it with a spoon so it melts evenly and doesn’t burn. Control the heat by lifting the ladle far from the heat or bringing it closer, as needed.
  3. Stir the melting sugar until it turns into a smooth, clear liquid with no lumps.
  4. Add baking soda and continue stirring. It will expand and change from light brown to creamy golden beige.
  5. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon sugar on a cookie pan. Scrape the hot, foamy candy from the ladle onto the sugar coated cookie pan.
  6. Place a skewer or lollipop stick in the center of the lower part of the candy, 1 inch from the edge.
  7. Press it down with any smooth, flat, non-stick object like a stainless steel bowl, lid, or a spatula.
  8. Use a cookie cutter to press a pattern into the center of the candy. Press hard and make a good impression if you want them to break out the design easily, and press softly if you want to drive them crazy!
  9. Wait for 1 minute until the candy gets hard. Enjoy!
