Level:
Intermediate

Ingredients
  • Candy Brittle:
  • 2 1/4 cups sugar
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons light corn syrup
  • 2 cups assorted candies (hot cinnamon candies, after dinner mints, candy cane pieces, sliced spice drops)
Directions

In a small, heavy bottomed saucepan over medium-low heat, cook the sugar, 3/4 cup water and corn syrup until the sugar dissolves. Increase the heat and boil, without stirring, until a candy thermometer registers 300 degrees F, about 15 minutes.

Place a 24-inch long sheet of foil on your work surface. Be extremely careful, the syrup is extremely hot. Pour the boiling syrup in wide zigzag lines across the foil. Working quickly and using an oiled offset metal spatula, spread the syrup evenly onto the foil, leaving a 1-inch border. Immediately sprinkle with all the candies, pressing the larger pieces into the syrup to make sure they stick. Be careful not to touch the syrup. Cool completely.
