This is not a broken glass casserole dish. This is raspberry candy!
Sometimes I just get a thought into my head out of the blue. Today it was while cleaning the boys' room. They had some candy from Christmas stuck to their desk. And I was thinking how good all that peanut brittle was. And how much I love raspberry. And then I remembered that we had some raspberry extract in the pantry from our hot cocoa bar.
If you are a man reading this. This is how women think. One thought leads to another in lightening speed, and before we know it, we're on a totally different errand than we intended.
I did finish cleaning the boy's room. And THEN I made candy!
Raspberry Hard Candy
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup lite corn syrup
1/4 cup water
4 drops pink food coloring
2 drops purple food coloring
1 teaspoon raspberry extract
In a medium size pot, on medium heat, combine sugar. corn syrup and water. Cook until the syrup mixture starts to turn yellow. This is your cue to get it off the stove. Quickly add food coloring and extract. Pour into a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. Wait until cool, and then break into pieces.
I had so much fun playing with Katie. We played "I see you!" as we looked through our rose colored glass.
And the candy was yummy too. It only lasted about 2 hours in our house. Good thing it was so easy to make.
