Making candy windows that withstand lighting

by Ami Hazell

I would like to find a candy window recipe that can withstand the heat of a 2 watt night light bulb..Any suggestions? This year I reverted back to the gelatin sheets.

sugar windows

Hi. you can make sugar windows by looking up the recipe on the internet and being very careful not to cook your sugar, karo syrup/water blend too long..and do not stir..what so ever.! watch the mixture VERY carefully. it will caramelize within about two seconds. You need to make a mold ahead of time. I used a square cookie cutter and lined it with foil. I poured the sugar mixture into the molds and then let them cool just a little. I used hot mitts and wiggled the cutter off to get the "window' loose. Don't wait too long or the cookie cutter will not come loose when the candy hardens up too much. Hope that helps. I am sure you can find a recipe on the net. Be sure not to leave the stove and keeo your eye oon the thermometer..Go to hard crack stage. test it in some cold water as well.
