Every year my friends and I get together to do this wonderful event. Last year we walk for over 8 hours straight and over 12 miles for this amazing cause. It is about that time again and would like to remind people of this amazing organization. I'm not going to ask that you donate directly to me but to a great team full of survivors! I will be updating via twitter during the entire event to let you know how we are doing and on the morning after the event will upload all the great pictures.If you would like to donate please go HERE.
Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun!

Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li
