Homemade holiday treats
3 3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 cup karo light syrup
1 cup water
Lorraine oil flavoring
2 greased cookie sheets
Stir together all the above until the sugar melts and then bring to a slow boil while stirring. Insert candy thermometer and boil until temperature is 250 degrees...add food coloring without stirring (the boiling will mix the color in). Continue to boil and when it reaches 300 degrees remove from heat and stir in Lorraine oil flavoring.
Spread half on each greased cookie sheet and as it cools, score candy and break into pieces. Drop pieces into powered sugar to coat - this keeps the candy from sticking together.
Here is just a little example of what I made...
