Candy Suckers

Every year as a child, my mom made hard candy suckers.  They are super easy and tasty.  Begin by purchasing sucker molds, sticks, and flavoring.  Assemble molds on cookie sheet and spray molds and cookie sheet with cooking spray.  This recipe makes about 20 suckers.

The recipe is as follows:
Mix 2 cups of sugar
2/3 c light corn syrup
1 cup water
1 tsp flavoring

Combine first three ingredients in pan.  Cook over medium heat, stirring until sugar dissolves.  Bring to a boil, add thermometer, cook, stirring occassionally, to hard crack stage (300 degrees).  Remove from heat, add oil flavoring,  and coloring if desired.  Pour hot candy into prepared molds.  Remove candy from molds when cooled.
