Having found a recipe on Etsy for weddings about making lollipops
I loved the idea a thought I’d try my hand, but it was not my best turnout.
I had fresh peppermint,
green food coloring and peppermint oil
The stars aligned, I could try something new with sugar and I didn’t even have to run to the store!
I have to say hard candy is a far cry from the caramel I make at Christmas.
I was unprepared for how quickly the sugar hardened or what the sugar could and could not do. It was fun and worth trying again, just not in peppermint; even if the house smelled minty fresh and we all had very clear sinuses!
