  • 2 C isomalt crystals
  • 1/2 C distilled water
  • cinnamon oil
  • red and yellow candy coloring
  • sucker sticks



  • Add the water and isomalt crystals to a small sauce pan, boil until 330 degrees
  • pour onto a silpat mat on a pan and let cool until hard
  • break up and you can store for up to 2 years


  • preheat the oven to 320
  • in three bowls separate the broken cooked isomalt (I used about 2/3rd's of the previously cooked isomalt and got 12 suckers)
  • put the bowls in the oven, the isomalt will remelt
  • pulling out one at a time you can stir in a drop of cinnamon and the coloring
  • on a silpat mat pour blobs of the red, then orange then yellow on top of the sucker sticks, they will harden semi quickly, it's okay
  • working with a few at a time (I found 3 to be best, they spread a lot) place a few of the suckers on a silpat mat again and place BACK in the oven for 2-3 mins.
  • the blobs will melt and spread
  • pull them out and using a toothpick drag the colors together and into points (aka flames).
  • you can let them set completely or what I did was wait until they were mostly set, just slightly soft/flexible and I pulled and twisted them into place
