Melt in your mouth Fudge

Melt in your mouth – easy fudge recipe which does not need a candy thermometer. This is a recipe my late mother in law made every year for gift giving for over 40 years. When she passed away a few years back, I started making it during Valentine’s Day to give out to family and friends, in memory of her. I make this on New Year’s Day for snacking while we take down the tree and decorations. Jim takes it to work for the guys to wish them a Happy New Year.

The leftover champagne (which I put in ice cube trays) was used to make a mimosa.

Rock Candy

1 cup confectioners’ sugar
3 3/4 cups white sugar

1 1/2 cups light corn syrup

1 cup water
2 teaspoons cinnamon oil

1 teaspoon red food coloring

Directions:Roll the edges of two 16 inch square pieces of heavy duty aluminum foil. Sprinkle the foil very generously with confectioners’ sugar.

In a large heavy saucepan, combine the white sugar, corn syrup, and water. Heat over medium-high heat, stirring constantly until sugar dissolves. Stop stirring, and boil until a candy thermometer reads 300 to 310 degrees F (149 to 154 degrees C). Remove from heat.

Stir in the cinnamon oil and food coloring. Pour onto the prepared foil, and allow to cool and harden. Crack into pieces, and store in an airtight container.
