INGREDIENTS

1 cup granulated sugar
½ cup light corn syrup
½ dram LorAnn Peppermint flavoring (1/2 tsp.) (as desired)
LorAnn Blue liquid food coloring (as desired)
Powdered sugar (optional)
Sucker bags (optional)
Twist ties (optional)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 185°F. Lightly spray cookie sheet and a large sharp knife with cooking spray (we recommend PAM). Thoroughly mix sugar and light corn syrup in a 4-cup microwave-safe glass measure. Cover with plastic wrap. Microwave on HIGH for 3 minutes and 15 seconds.* 
  2. Remove from the microwave and carefully remove plastic wrap. Quickly stir the sugar mixture and then cover with a NEW sheet of plastic wrap. Microwave on high for 3 minutes and 15 seconds.* 
  3. Remove from microwave, carefully remove plastic wrap and stir with a clean spoon. After boiling has ceased, stir in coloring and then flavoring. 
  4. Pour syrup quickly, but carefully using a spoon to control flow, onto prepared cookie sheet, tilting sheet slightly to form an 8 inch by 6 inch puddle. As the sugar mixture begins to set up, cut candy into 1/2 inch by 4 inch strips. Return sheet to oven for 1 or 2 minutes to soften for twisting. 
  5. Remove 1 strip from sheet and gently twist and pull into icicle shape. You can also wrap the candy around a pencil, then pull off to form a curled shape. Repeat with the remaining strips, leaving the cookie sheet in the oven to keep strips soft and pliable. If strips get too soft, let them cool a bit until they are a firmer consistency. Cool strips on a rack. Do not refrigerate. 
Store flat in airtight containers between waxed paper.
