As West Texas creeps back into the triple digits I keep trying to remind myself why I still live here.lol Then I remember it cost most to move so here we sit and continue to melt. With air conditioners running 24 hours a day and the house keeping to 80+ degrees we are trying to find more and more ways to keep cool! Water needs ice or to be chilled in the fridge. Popsicles get expensive not to mention they aren't great for you. We load up on fruit and fresh veggies and down our smoothies. Still it needs something more! So I am reaching out looking for ideas from my fans :O) Please help us survive the summer!
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! Here is what you need: 2 Cups of Sugar 2 Cups of Water 1 Package Sugar Free Jello A candy Thermometer Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. 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
