Yield: about 2 pounds


  • 1 cup water
  • 3 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon red liquid food coloring
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon oil
  • 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar


  1. Line a 15 x 10 inch baking pan with foil and butter the foil; set aside.
  2. In a large heavy saucepan, combine water, sugar, corn syrup and food coloring. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Cover and cook for 3 minutes to dissolve sugar crystals. Uncover; cook on medium-high heat, without stirring, until a candy thermometer reads 300 degrees F (hard crack stage), about 25 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat; stir in cinnamon oil. Immediately pour into prepared pan.
  4. Cool completely, about 45 minutes.
  5. Break into pieces using the edge of a metal mallet.
  6. Sprinkle both sides of candy with confectioners' sugar.
  7. Store in airtight containers.
