Candy that looks like broken glass
I made it in the microwave. I found it to be so much easier than on the stove top.

1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 dram flavoring oil such as peppermint or blueberry
Blue food coloring
White food coloring *optional (I added a drop or two for opacity)
Disco dust *optional

Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray.

In a 4 cup glass measure, mix sugar and corn syrup together until a thick, uniform paste forms. Cover with plastic wrap. Microwave on high for 3 minutes 15 seconds. Quickly stir mixture and cover with a new piece of plastic wrap. Microwave for another 3 minutes 15 seconds. Remove from microwave and stir with a clean spoon. After the mixture stops boiling, add the food color and flavoring. The cooked candy mixture will have a golden appearance, so when you add the blue food coloring you will get a blue/green (turquoise) color result.

Pour melted candy onto the prepared pan. Tilt the sheet to spread the candy to a 6x8 inch puddle. As the sugar starts to set (one or two minutes after pouring). Allow to cool. When candy hardens, hit it with a malet. I just used a pair of scissors and stabbed it and it shattered.

*This recipe is meant to be prepared in a standard household microwave (600-700 watts). Mini microwaves and commercial microwaves are not recommended.

*Please use caution when making this recipe. Candy mixture is extremely hot when in liquid state.
