Homemade Candy

It's a recipe of Candy Cane, a very fun holiday project for kids.


  • 2 cups sugar
  • ½  cups light corn syrup
  • ½ cups water
  • ¼  tsp cream of tartar
  • ¾  tsp peppermint extract
Put sugar, corn syrup, water and cream of tartar to a very hard boil till sugar melt totally without stirring. 
Remove from heat and add peppermint. Add food colouring as you wish. 

Pre-heat your oven to 200 degrees, you might need to keep the sugar warm later.
Grease table top (stainless steel or marble top) and utensil, also put some on your hands or gloves if you are using. It's really hot, do give a minute of cooling to the right temparature before using hands. Kids really have fun making their own shapes of lollipop. 

To make white lollipop, pull sugar quickly and fold it back on itself for many times, it will turn the sugar to beautiful pearly colour before turning into white. By doing this, it's also adds air to it so the candy is 'crisp' instead of hard.
