So today I attempted to use the mold to make Lego suckers (are they still suckers without sticks? These are like Jolly Ranchers). But it didn’t go as smoothly as the gummie’s did.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/3 light corn syrup
- 1/2-1 1/2 teaspoons candy flavoring
- Food coloring
Mix the sugar, water and corn syrup together in a saucepan.
Cook it over med-high heat, stir until all the sugar is dissolved.
Boil until it reaches the hard-crack stage, which is about 300 degree on a candy thermometer.
Remove from heat and add food coloring slowly, then add the flavoring.
Pour quickly but smoothly into the molds.
Don't worry about any bubbles, they'll go away on their own.
I thought the gummie’s thickened quickly. These suckers started going hard so fast I couldn’t even spread it around very well. I couldn’t get the base plate to stick into it (too hard by the time I tried, so they can’t stack. Oh well, live and learn). It was fun to try and fairly simple, now that I know what NOT to do, I think we’ll end up trying it again soon!
