Sugar Glass Hearts
Updated: Feb 1, 2021
It’s almost Valentines day, so I wanted to make something that's unique, pretty to look at, and fun to eat (but make sure you don't break a tooth!). These sugar glass hearts only have 4 ingredients, and they're really easy to make. You can make these with any mold, not just hearts. Get creative! Check out the yummy cookie cups I made them with.
Here's how to make them:
2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2/3 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup water
Red food coloring (I like to use natural food coloring, no chemicals)
Mix the sugar, corn syrup and water in a heavy pot over medium heat.
Stir continuously. It will turn into clumps, and eventually become completely melted.
Use a candy thermometer to make sure it gets to about 310° F to get it to the "hard crack" stage. If you don't have a candy thermometer, every few minutes use a spoon to drop some of the candy into a bowl of water. It’s ready when it forms a brittle thread and easily cracks.
Add in a few drops of red food coloring.
Remove the candy from the stove and use a spoon to carefully drip the candy into a heart-shaped silicone mold. Be very careful - melted sugar burns hurt, trust me!
Put it into the fridge to cool and that's it!
