I made these as a last minute thing for my husband to take to work. They are simple to make if you can make a cupcake, you can make these. I made the glass a little different. I used the basic hard candy recipe, 2cups white sugar, 2/3 cup light corn syrup, 3/4 cup of water. Stir it till it is combined on medium heat, when to starts to slow boil, do not touch it again. When it hits the hard crack stage of 300, I removed it from the heat, added one dram of cinnamon oil, if you use cinnamon oil, be sure to open a window and step back when you add it at the end of the cooking process. Stir it well into the candy and then pour the candy onto slightly sprayed aluminum foil. Let it cool and break. If you don't have a candy thermometer just put a piece of ice into a glass of water. When you drizzle some syrup in, if it hardens right away, your candy is done. Every stove is different, but my candy took about 40 minutes. Do it slowly, and it will never fail you.
