Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • LorAnn liquid food coloring (as desired)
  • 1/2 dram (1/2 teaspoon) LorAnn flavoring oil (as desired)
  • Confectioners' sugar, optional

Directions

Thoroughly mix sugar and light corn syrup in a 4-cup microwave-safe glass bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave on high for 2 minutes. Remove from microwave and carefully remove plastic wrap.
Quickly stir the sugar mixture and then cover with a new sheet of plastic wrap. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Remove from microwave, carefully remove plastic wrap and stir.
After boiling has ceased, stir in coloring and then flavoring. Pour syrup quickly but carefully onto a lightly greased baking sheet and score at once to mark squares. Break into pieces when cool and dust with confectioners' sugar if desired, to keep from sticking. Store in airtight containers. Yield: none.
Editor's Note: Mini-microwaves and commercial microwaves are not recommended.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested in a 1,100-watt microwave.
