Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup brewed coffee
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup

Nutritional Facts

1 each: 70 calories, 0g fat (0g saturated fat), 0mg cholesterol, 2mg sodium, 18g carbohydrate (17g sugars, 0g fiber), 0g protein .

Directions

  1. In a large heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, coffee, corn syrup, cocoa and cinnamon. Cook over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved, stirring constantly. Cook over medium heat, without stirring, until a candy thermometer reads 290° (soft-crack stage), about 7 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  2. Immediately stir in vanilla, then pour into a greased 2-cup heat-proof glass measuring cup. Working quickly, pour tablespoonfuls into circles on a greased baking sheet and lay a stick in each circle. Allow to cool until hardened. When cooled, wrap with plastic wrap and tie with ribbon. Store in an airtight container. Yield: about 1 dozen.
Editor's Note: We recommend that you test your candy thermometer before each use by bringing water to a boil; the thermometer should read 212°. Adjust your recipe temperature up or down based on your test.
