Cinnamon Sea Glass Candy

Shards of spicy hard candy make for a great addition to the holiday stockings

Makes 220g, 10 servings
6 oz (3/4 cup + 2 tbsp) sugar
¼ cup clear corn syrup
¼ cup water
1 dram cinnamon oil (this makes it very spicy, if you’re not sure start with ½ dram)
tiny dollop gel food colouring

Line a baking sheet with greased parchment or silpat (I personally vote silpat).
Combine sugar, syrup and water in a saucepan and place over medium-high heat.
Attach a candy thermometer to the side of the pan.
Boil, without stirring, until temperature reaches 300F.
Remove from the heat, add cinnamon oil and food colouring and mix in thoroughly.
Pour into the lined pan and let cool until hard, then break into shards
