Description

Nothing says Merry Christmas like delicious cinnamon rock candy! I learned to make this after my husband and I became married. He has wonderful childhood memories of his Grandmother who would make this for him during the holidays as he grew up! Cinnamon oil can be found at the craft store or fine baking stores next to candy making supplies. Step by step photos are included on the related blog link.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Water
  • 3-¾ cups Sugar
  • 1-¼ cup Light Corn Syrup
  • 1 teaspoon Food Coloring (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon Oil (2 Teaspoons For Spicy)
  • 1-½ cup Powdered Sugar
  • Butter, For Greasing Your Surfaces

Preparation

Butter a 15 inch x 10 inch x 1 inch sheet cake pan. Line the pan with parchment paper and butter the parchment paper, making sure the edges of the parchment paper are well buttered to prevent the candy from seeping underneath.

In a large deep sauce pan combine water, sugar, corn syrup and food coloring. Mix over medium high heat until sugar starts to dissolve. Attach a candy thermometer to the side of the pan making sure it does not touch the bottom of pan for an accurate temperature. Continue to boil until sugar mixture reaches 300 degrees F (hard crack stage) – about 20 minutes. Watch closely, if mixture starts to boil too close to the edge of pan remove pan from heat and stir until bubbles subside and then return to medium high heat.

Once mixture reaches 300 degrees F remove pan from heat and stir in the cinnamon oil, working quickly. Keep your face away from the mixture as it is strong like onions and keep the work area well ventilated. Pour immediately into prepared pan. Allow to cool for 4 hours.

After 4 hours dust the top of the candy with powdered sugar. Flip candy over onto a large cutting board or cookie sheet and remove parchment paper. Return candy to the pan and use the tip of a sharp knife to break candy into bite size pieces. Dust with more powdered sugar and store in a airtight container.
