Edible Sugar Glass
Edible sugar glass is so fun to make and play with! Need prop glass to break? Maybe you want to make an edible stained glass window? Perhaps you want to make little glass candies with those silicone molds that you have? This recipe is really easy to make. If I can do you it, you can do it.
Servings: 12 people
- 2 cups white granulated sugar 450g
- 1 cup of corn syrup Karo syrup (300g)
- 1/2 to 1 cup water 125 to 250ml
- pinch of cream of tartar optional
- 1 - 2 tbsp food coloring use as much as you want to get the desired color
- 1 - 2 tsp flavored extracts
Prepare a sheet pan with a silicone mat or spray it lightly with cooking spray.
Add the water, sugar, corn syrup, and cream of tartar into your pot or skillet
Add the pot to the stovetop. Set the heat to medium-low and heat up the mixture. Gently stir until the sugar mixture starts to boil. After it boils you can stop stirring.
Allow the sugar syrup to reach 290 to 300 F (hard crack stage) (145 to 150 C). If you aren't using a candy thermometer right when it starts to turn yellow it is ready to go. You can also check it by dropping a spoonful into a bowl with ice-cold water. It will harder up instantly and then you can check out brittle it is. If it breaks easy it is ready to go.
Pour the hot sugar syrup onto your prepared pan or use a spoon and spoon it into your silicone molds. You will need to work fairly quickly because it thickens and hardens up fairly quickly.
Allow it to cool for an hour or two. Then you can smash it! Have fun! :)
***Be careful when preparing the recipe the sugar gets extremely hot and will burn you. If you are a young person please have adult supervision.
