Translucent Hard Candy

Anyone here have experience creating translucent hard candy … coloring it … flavoring it … pouring it into a mold?

Thanks in advance :beers:

I made lollipops once … and only once … so that tells ya how much fun I had lol :wink:

Getting it to and keeping it at the right temp was murder let alone you are then trying to work with molten lava :wink:

My sister makes hard candy every Christmas for her clients, but she doesn’t use a mold. She just pours it all out onto tin foil, let’s it cool, then smashes it into small pieces. I am allowed to help, but not do the cooking, heh.

Some people prefer candy that comes in fun shapes like little animals or hearts. I like candy that can be mistaken for broken glass.

Once you break it, you dust it with powdered sugar to keep it from sticking. Then put it in a container and shake it to knock off the pointy bits. Looks like sea glass when you’re done. Sea glass and diabetes.

Thank you thank you thank you!

LOL!!!

So, forcing through a large syringe thingy might be problematic too … good times ahead!

I then want to add a opaque layer all around the outside of the shape … WooHoo!!

So a fill, and a stroke, then.
