  • 2.5 cups sugar
  • 6 tbsp. milk
  • 6 tbsp. water or orange juice or other juices/liquid such as coffee
  • 2.5 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • flavorings or extracts/essences
  • Milk/dark choc - melted


  • Combine the sugar milk water. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, stirring slowly.
  • When it begins to boil, reduce the heat to low and let it simmer without stirring for 3 minutes.
  • Pour into a heat-proof glass dish. (Don't scrape the pot - it will cause the sugar to crystallize!)
  • Add 2 & 1 TBSP of unsalted butter, and flavoring
  • Stir with a wooden spoon or whisk it, until it turns white and stiff.
  • Then pour the mass onto a damp kitchen towel and form into a rectangle about 3 inches thick.
  • Let it stiffen a bit more, but not completely hard, cut into shapes with a wet knife
  • Dip in melted choc and let it harden before wrapping (you can freeze the candy first before dipping in Choc)
  • Enjoy!
