Christmas Peppermint Hard Candy

You will need

1/2 cup of water

2 cups of sugar

3/4 cups of Karo

Powdered sugar

Pan (I used a square  ” by  ”

peppermint extract and green food dye

Put a layer of powdered sugar in the pan and put the pan to the side

Combine water, sugar and karo in a sauce pan over high heat until boiling. Let boil a few minutes until it reaches 300 degrees (use a candy thermometer

Once it reaches 300, continue to cook for a couple minutes but not too long- it will burn fast.

Once you get it dissolved and to the right temperature, take it off the heat and add the flavoring and dye then pour it into the pan
