How to Make Homemade Candy?

There are many varieties of homemade candy such as rock candy, fudge, peanut clusters, chocolates, or peanut brittle to name a few. The best way to make candy is to first determine what kind you would like to make and then find a great recipe for it. Here is an easy rock candy recipe. You will need 2 cups sugar, 1/2 cup corn syrup, 1/2 cup water, 1/2 teaspoon flavoring oil, and food coloring. Combine your first 3 ingredients and cook until it reaches 300 degrees. (You may want to get a candy thermometer.) Remove from the heat and add your flavoring oil and food coloring, then quickly pour into a greased baking sheet. Let cool just slightly and cut into pieces, then let cool completely and break the pieces apart. Enjoy.
