When people think of hard candy, we often think of cavities and money spent at the dentist office, but what If i told you that you could eat hard candy without the risk of it playing havoc with your teeth?

Simply read ahead to find the easy to follow process of making hard ‘Broken Glass Hard Candy’.

• 1/2 cup water
• 3/4 cup light corn syrup
• 2 cups granulated sugar
• 2 to 4 teaspoons flavoring extract
• 1/2 teaspoon gel food coloring
• 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Line a baking sheet with a nonstick silicone mat or a layer of aluminum foil sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. If you are making more than one color and flavor of candy, grease one pan for each.

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the water, corn syrup, and granulated sugar. Stir until the sugar dissolves. When the sugar syrup comes to a boil, insert a candy thermometer. Continue to cook the sugar syrup, stirring occasionally, until the thermometer reads 300 F (150 C).

Remove the pan from the heat and let the candy cool off a little until it stops bubbling completely.

Pour the candy out onto the prepared baking sheets and let it spread into a thin layer.

Cool the candy completely at room temperature; this can take up to 2 hours. Once it is set, pull the candy up from the sheet and crack it into small pieces by banging it against a cutting board or shattering it with a knife handle. Now all that's left to do is have fun on your sugar high.
