santahat Candy Cane Recipie

I learned this from a friend of my mother. She makes these every years and are so much better than the processed ones.

Candy Cane Recipe


1 cup sugar
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup water
1/8 tsp. cream of tartar
4 drops oil of peppermint or other flavoring
4 drops red or green food coloring
Grease a hard surface.
Simmer the sugar with the corn syrup, water and cream of tartar until the mix reaches a soft crack stage or about 280 degrees on a candy thermometer. Remove from the heat and add the flavoring.
Divide the syrup in half. Add food coloring to one half; pour out separately onto the greased surfaces. Cool for 1 to 2 minutes. Pull each half separately; roll into 1/2" thick ropes. Twist colored batch around the white batch pulling until the colors adhere. Cut with scissors into 6" long lengths; bend to crook one end.
NOTE: You can find Wintergreen or oil of cinnamon to use as a flavoring. Work quickly to form candy canes or you can form knots.

This looks like a great recipe, I may have to try it. I am sure you have to work very quickly before everything sets up. I have tried many recipes. Never have made a candy cane...thank you for sharing.

I would love to try this, but I'm a little scared. Mine would probably come out looking like a big blob of mess. LOL!

What fun! I might try this with an older Girl Scout troop. I think they'd have fun with this.
