Preparation

Step 1

Place parchment paper in a cake pan (use a square 8’’ X 8’’ pan for better results).

Step 2

In a pot, mix together the corn syrup, sugar and food coloring. Bring to a boil.

Step 3

It is preferable to use a candy thermometer to control the temperature. You must stir the boiling mixture constantly, until reaching a temperature of 305°F.

If you do not have access to a candy thermometer, you can still achieve the final result with a few attempts. Once the first bubbles appear, wait approximately 15 minutes before removing from heat. Pay attention to the change in colour of the mixture and the smell while cooking around the 14-minute mark. Remove from heat once it starts turning slightly darker and has a stronger smell. To achieve the desired chemical reaction, the sugar should not burn or have a temperature below 295°F.

Step 4

Remove from heat and add the baking soda, while quickly stirring for about 10 seconds.

Step 5

Place the mixture in the cake pan. The mixture will puff up and, depending on the size of the cake pan, may overflow a little.

Step 6

Let it sit for about 20 minutes, until it becomes harder and fresher.

Step 7

Remove from the cake pan and break it into small pieces, using your hands.
