    Yield: 32 Servings

    1 c Water
    3 3/4 c Sugar
    1 1/4 c Light corn syrup
    1 ts Red liquid food coloring
    1 ts Cinnamon oil
    1/3 c Confectioners' sugar

    Line a 15" x 10" x 1" pan with foil; butter the foil and

    medium heat, stirring occasionally. Cover and cook for 3
    minutes to dissolve sugar crystals.

    about 45 minutes.

    Break the candy into pieces using the edge of a metal
    mallet. Sprinkle both sides of candy with confectioners'
    sugar. Store in airtight container.

    Yield: about 2 pounds.

    NOTES: Cinnamon oil can be found in some pharmacies or
    at kitchen and cake decorating supply stores.

    We recommend that you test your candy thermometer before
    each use by bringing water to a boil; the thermometer
    should read 212ºF/100ºC. Adjust your recipe temperature
    up or down based on your test.
