Rock Candy

22 Aug
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup white corn syrup
  • 3 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 drops of blue gel food coloring

I boiled the mixture and then continued stirring it on the heat until it reached 300 degrees F (used a candy thermometer to measure the temp). At that point, I poured it into a tray to cool. It hardened up in about an hour and then I smashed it to pieces. via reddit

      I don’t think I would pass them out in the little baggies… it does look suspicious that way! Yikes!

    It looks like drugs because it’s basically a replica of how they make Blue Sky meth in Breaking Bad (minus the actual meth, of course).

      I would imagine you could get a cinnamon flavor from the candy making and baking aisle in a craft store walmart etc. I havent made these before but im sure it would work fine.
