How to Make Hard Candy

LorAnn hard candy flavor oils has created the most amazing and mouth watering flavors.  

I've tried multitudes of them and they always please. This is a great product delivering on the anticipation of old fashioned hard tack.

Hard Tack is an expression of days gone by. It's what my elders called hard candy.

They would powder it in powdered sugar, so it wouldn't stick together, and seal it up in a screw top jar for the holidays.

This is a Christmas holiday tradition my family loves.

The instructions are included with the candy flavor oil. Just follow the easy instructions included for the best hard Christmas candy ever.

Christmas wouldn't be the same with all those old kids movies and classics for the family to gather round and enjoy. Keep Christmas traditions alive and well with these classics.

Candy Thermometer

I love this thermometer for it's storage and carrying sleeve, the temperature range and the fact the stem is stored in an antibacterial pen of sorts.

The secret to making any great homemade candy is cooking it to the correct temperature. You must have a good thermometer to do this. Get the temperature right and you'll have the perfect holiday treat.
