Directions

  1. Roll the edges of two 16 inch square pieces of heavy duty aluminum foil. Sprinkle the foil very generously with confectioners' sugar.
  2. In a large heavy saucepan, combine the white sugar, corn syrup, and water. Heat over medium-high heat, stirring constantly until sugar dissolves. Stop stirring, and boil until a candy thermometer reads 300 to 310 degrees F (149 to 154 degrees C). Remove from heat.
  3. Stir in the cinnamon oil and food coloring. Pour onto the prepared foil, and allow to cool and harden. Crack into pieces, and store in an airtight container.

This is a great recipe! We made cinnamon, lemon, cherry and creme de mint. I did not use the powdered sugar and I let the candy cool just a little then ran a pizza cutter through the candy most of the way so we could break it apart in little rectangles and still be able to peel the aluminum foil off easily. It worked great!

This candy is very good. I am new at making candy, but having a lot of fun testing different ones. But this is easy and good. Best investment is a good candy thermometer. An accurate fast reading one. Important not to stir when boiling. I as many other people didnt, didnt dust with powdered sugar. It would be nice to roll in fine sugar or even coarse sugar instead. If you buy your oil at a craft store as i did, you get 2 small bottles and they are each ONE DRAM. If you half this recipe, you should use a whole dram for a great flavor. Your entire house will smell of cinnamon for a while...but its great. MUST USE OIL, and not extract. Oil is concentrated and tastes better. Cant wait to try other flavors. I have peppermint and want to try strawberry. Give this one a try, you'll love it!!! Also, use parchment paper, SOOOO MUCH easier than foil!!!!!!
