A thin sheet of hard candy created to resemble glass.
Ingredients
  • Ingredients
  • 3 ½ cups Dixie Crystals Sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 2 cups water
  • ¼ tsp cream of tartar
Instructions
  1. In a small saucepan, bring sugar, corn syrup, water and cream of tartar to a very slow boil. DO NOT STIR.
  2. Cook until mixture reaches 310 degrees (approximately an hour) or a hard crack stage.
  3. As the mixture heats, dip the pastry brush in a bowl of water and wipe down the sides of the pan. This will prevent the sugar from crystalizing on side of pan, which could cause the sugar in the pan to crystalize.
  4. Remove from heat and immediately pour sugar syrup onto a baking sheet. Quickly tilt pan to help spread syrup across the baking sheet; make a very thin layer. Rest baking sheet on a cooling rack and allow to syrup to harden.
  5. Once cooled, break into harden sugar into glass shards using a meat mallet.
