I would pour the left over on another sheet that is sprayed with cooking spray and let cool. That will make homemade hard candy. I always add candy flavoring to my recipe, so I will have a flavored hard candy to suck on later

Crack candy grapes are one of the latest requests from my tween daughter right now, and what's not to love about these grapes rolled in crushed green apple, purple grape, blue raspberry, and pink watermelon flavored Jolly Rancher hard candies?!

Also, if you have rock candy on hand, it works beautifully for these crack grapes. You may find that you prefer the rock candy over the flavored Jolly Rancher candies. I'm still on the fence ?

Crack grapes are grapes that have been coated in a candy syrup and then rolled in 'cracked' hard candy like Jolly Ranchers, sour Cry Baby Tears, sour WarHeads, or rock candy. The syrup dries on the grapes clear (it can also be colored, using gel food coloring, if desired) and the colors of the candies make the crack candied grapes colorful and fun.

**To know that your syrup has reached the hard crack stage, use a spoon or spatula to drop the molten hot syrup into a bowl or cup of cold water. It should form hard threads that break and do not bend.

I store mine at room temperature initially while they are setting up, or the day they are made. They don't usually last beyond the day I intend them for ? However, to store them for use beyond the first day I would place a sheet of parchment paper in an air tight container, and a sheet of parchment paper between each layer, then store in the refrigerator. You risk the candy losing it's crispness by storing beyond day one or two. Just my thoughts on it, and I will make a batch here soon to test out the max number of days I would recommend storing the crack grapes.Thanks for asking! And I hope that helps!

3. Continue to stir, using a pastry brush dampened with warm water to dissolve the sugar crystals clinging to the sides of the pot, then stop stirring as soon as the syrup starts to boil. To get to hard crack stage, it takes 15 to 20 minutes of hard boiling. Do not leave the pot unattended even for one second.

4. You are boiling the sugar to the hard crack stage at 300F-310F (146C-154C) where the sugar concentration is at 99% and the water is at 1%. This happens just seconds before the sugar begins to brown and caramelize. At these temperatures, there is almost no water left in the syrup.

5. To read the temperature of the sugar without a candy thermometer, drop a small amount of the syrup into cold water and it will form hard, brittle threads that break when bent. CAUTION: to avoid burns, allow the syrup to cool in the cold water for a few moments before attempting to touch it.

*If you're new to sugar work and the candy doesn't harden how you'd like, you can put it back into the pot and warm it up slowly and try again. Also, if the sugar becomes too hard to manage, you can use this technique as well to make it pourable again. Unfortunately, if it crystalizes you will have to restart the process.

I have made this candy at Christmas time years ago and decided to make it again today. I would not say this is an easy recipe and I am a seasoned cook. You must use a candy thermometer and you must make sure it reaches the correct temp which is 260 degrees. Then you pour it in a stream into your already beaten stiff eggwhites in your stand mixer. Your wrist will get tired. Take a few seconds break now and then until all the syrup is in there. Then it is hard to know how long to continue to beat. Paula Dean says five minutes, but my mixer became slow and I did not want to break it (Kitchen Aids are NOT cheap.)so I stopped beating it. I stirred in the pecans which also is hard to do because now the candy is thick as melted marshmellows and it is difficult to stir anything in there never mind the nuts. Then I buttered my spoon as several recipes suggested and began to drop the candy on my waxed paper. Good luck trying to get it off the spoon for the next one. The entire process is horribly sticky and I was so happy when I reached the bottom of the bowl. Now I am drying all my candy plops and sitting down with a cup of tea, thinking I may never make this candy again because it is NOT easy.

I have a way to make it in high humidity. Cook syrup to hard ball stage. Beat egg whites stiff. Pour one cup of cooked mixture over egg whites beating constantly. Cook remaining mixture to light to medium crack stage. Gradually pour this mixture over eggs whites, beating constantly. Add vanilla Beat until mixture loses its gloss. Drop on your paper.

Annette, While your syrup is heating, put on a kettle of water to boil. Shortly before the candy is ready, pour the hot water into a large bowl. If your candy starts to thicken and harden too quickly, you can dip your pot into the bowl of water to warm it and soften it a bit. Just be careful not to get any water into the candy.

I've been there!! This is what I do: first melt butter (on medium heat, but don't let it turn brown), then add the sugar and stir constantly until it's completely dissolved, but stop stirring as soon as it boils!! (I think both of these help prevent the crystallizing). I am not familiar with baking toffee, though. I keep cooking it for 10-15 minutes until it reaches the hard crack stage (one of those candy thermometers that attaches to your pan is ideal; if you have a thermometer, 300 degrees is the temp for a similar toffee I make). I imagine you could put it into the oven as you've done after it boils, and bake instead of stovetop cooking. I've also never put it on crackers, so I suppose when it's done you pour it onto crackers to cool. I hope this helps!! :)P.S. cooking time could also be a factor. I would not stop at soft ball stage, but keep cooking until hard crack stage.

After combining the candy ingredients, stir over low heat until the sugars dissolve. Then kick up the heat to medium and boil the syrup until you reach that magic soft-ball stage temperature of 239F (photo 2). It'll take about 10 to 15 minutes to get there.

Working quickly, portion the candy on a half sheet baking pan lined with a Silpat silicone mat or parchment paper into 2 tablespoon mounds using a medium cookie scoop (photo 4). The candy will firm up quickly, making it harder to scoop.

Brittle is a type of candy. It is basically melted, caramelized sugar that has been heated to the hard crack stage, approximately 305 to 310 degrees Fahrenheit and aerated with baking soda. Caramelized sugar is acidic, when you add baking soda it reacts and produces gas creating a bubbly mixture that is then poured over nuts and spread out to cool.

White Granulated Sugar: Sugar is caramelized and cooked until the hard crack stage, approximately 305 to 310 degrees Fahrenheit. That means that once the sugar cools it will solidify and snap into pieces easily. It should not be sticky or bendy.

Baking Soda: The addition of baking soda creates millions of microscopic bubbles in the candy. These bubbles make the caramelized sugar "brittle" so that it breaks when you bite it rather than being so hard you must suck on it like toffee or a lollipop.

Lemon Drop Candies Print Cook time 10 mins Total time 15 mins Lemon Drop Candy Recipe from Serves: 45 pieces Ingredients 1 cup sugar, granulated cup water teaspoon cream of tartar teaspoon lemon extract 2 teaspoons citric acid yellow gel food coloring super-fine (granulated sugar in food processor), powdered or granulated sugar, to coat Instructions Prepare work stations-- sauce-pan, silicone mat/marble/oiled parchment paper on sheet pan, oiled/buttered kitchen shears, oiled/buttered spatula, pan of coating sugar. Have ingredients all measured and ready to incorporate before starting. Sugar isn't very forgiving! Heat sugar, water and cream of tartar (prevents crystallization) in stainless steel or copper saucepan over medium/medium-high heat. Heat to exactly 300 deg F, using a candy thermometer to verify temperature. At 300, immediately remove pan from heat and pour to silicone mat or marble surface. Mix in lemon extract, citric acid and a small amount of gel coloring. Incorporate with oiled spatula. When cool enough to handle (this will happen quickly), form into rope. Using oiled kitchen shears, cut rope into individual pieces. Let fall into pan of coating sugar. This prevents the pieces from sticking to each other. Sift excess sugar and allow candy to cool completely. It will harden after some time. Come back to and let us know how it went!

It sounds harder than it is. IDK if cream of tartar makes a difference but I tell my friends that the key is to not stir. Once you have everything mixed in, dissolved and boiling, just set your thermometer in and watch your pan to make sure nothing boils over. Play some tunes get the other stuff ready that you forgot to prep before starting. If you have your heat on medium to medium low it will take between 20 and 30 minutes for the hard crack stage (300 degrees) hope this helps.
