Candy making has always been close to my heart.Though its not a rocket science but I felt some sense of achievement when I first made Pate de Fruits and hard candies.

I first came across Sriracha lolipops here and was quited inspired to try it out because one,I like sweet and chilli combination and two,this flavor was in a candy!

1 cup sugar
1/4 cup light corn syrup

Color a drop of orange gel but I used red !

Combine sugar,corn syrup and water in a sucepan.Stir while bringing to a boil.
Cover the sauce pan and boil for 3-4 mins >remove the cover and insert a candy thermometer and cook without stirring until the temparature reaches 115C.Add hald the sauce .Be careful as it will sputter and do not stir.
Continue to cook till it reaches 154C.Remove from heat and shock the saucepan in cold water for 20 seconds to prevent carry over cooking.
Allow the cooked sugar to sit undisturbed for 5 mins to cool and for bubbles subside.
Gently mix the remainig sauce and gel color.
