I just love this idea of creating 'Frozen Icicle Sweets'. Here's how to make them!
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup white corn syrup
- 3 1/2 cups sugar
- 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 drops of blue gel food coloring
Boil the mixture and then continue stirring it on the heat until it reaches 300 degrees F (used a candy thermometer to measure the temp). At that point, pour it into a tray to cool. It hardens up in about an hour and then smash it to pieces! That's the most fun bit :)
