Slow Motion Making of Peppermint Hard Candy

  • Buy our hard candy!
    Please pick second day air with a cold pack, if you don't we will have to call you and tell you that you need it. Although we love talking to our customers we just don't have the time to do that. So please help us help you get your order as quickly and painlessly as possible.
    ***WARNING***This video is made for educational purposes only, if you attempt to make this at home you do so at your own risk and we can not be held responsible for any injuries. Making hard candy is a dangerous process since such high temperature are used to make it. With that said, for those that are curious and want specifics this is how we make it.
    For one full size batch we combine into a copper kettle 14 pounds of corn syrup, 7 pounds of sugar, 1 teaspoon of cream of tartar and 2 quarts of water. We heat it up to 310°F, then we remove it from the stove and pour it onto the marble table and cool it down. Here we add in color and flavoring oil before stretching it on the hook. We stretch it to add in air bubbles which turns it white. We combine the stripes into the body and put it through our fancy candy cutter, then we just wait for it to cool down and bag it up for you to buy!

    The flavour does not come off only the water evaporating
    They evaporate the water off teqila so its stronger
    So that means the flavour does not go away

    This video would be HIGHLY satisfying if it were done when the candy wasn't wet
    Flipping and stirring while it's drying and not so wet and stringy.
