Ingredients

A Candy Thermometer (absolutely necessary)

A heat gun (recommended but not necessary if you have a reliable candy thermometer)

A heavy pot for cooking

Hard candy mold or mini muffin pan with foil liners

Patience and lots of time!

2 Cups of Sugar

2/3 Cup of Corn Syrup

3/4 Cup of water

1 dram (1 small bottle) Candy flavoring oil

1 teaspoon Tart n' Sour flavoring

decarboxylated kief (amount will depend on how strong your dosing your candies) This time I used 1/8th gram per candy in my mini muffin tin.

extra sugar for dusting your finished candies

Directions

1Spray your mold or muffin tin with a very light shot of cooking spray.

2Measure out your desired dosage of decarboxylated kief and add that to each section in the muffin tin or mold

3Add the Sugar, Corn Syrup, & Water to your heavy pan. DO NOT STIR!

4Place your candy thermometer in your pan. Be sure that it doesn't rest on the bottom of your pan if it does, it will break and ruin your thermometer and your candy.

5Place your pan on medium heat.

6Pull up a chair and be prepared for the wait. Watch your candy in the pot, but do not stir it or turn your heat up past medium.

7Watch for the sugar mixture to begin to boil. Now allow it to boil together until it reaches 300 degrees F (hard crack stage). This takes anywhere from 20-40 minutes depending on your oven. Here's where the heat gun comes in handy. I use it to check the temperature of the boiling candy in different parts of the pan. I do this throughout the boiling process. Inevitably there will be a hot and cool spot in the pan. When any one spot hits 300 degrees F immediately remove the pan from the burner.

8Quickly add your flavoring and Tart 'n Sour. It will incorporate with the boiling action of the candy mixture. DO NOT STIR! Stirring will create bubbles in your candy.

9Add your candy mixture to your prepared molds. I use a metal tablespoon and quickly spoon it into the mini muffin tin. Whatever is left over I pour into one of my hard candy molds. (Be sure you are only using molds that are rated for high heat. Chocolate molds are NOT and WILL MELT if you add this molten sugar into them! Ruins your mold and your candies too!)

10Allow your candies to cool completely

11Carefully unmold your candy

12In a small bowl add about 1/4 Cup of granulated sugar.

13Place each candy into sugar and flip the candy over so both sides are coated with sugar. You may spray a fine mist of water on the candies to help the sugar to adhere.

14Place candies on a plate and allow to dry with the sugar coating in place.

15Package and enjoy your Hash Hard Candies.

***Please note you are working with REALLY HOT sugar and this can burn really bad. Use extreme care to keep this away from your skin!

OK so I hope you have fun making your own Hard Hash Candies, just remember to have lots of patience & time. And again please be very careful. That molten sugar can do a lot of damage to your skin. I recommend doing this entire project BEFORE medicating so you are able to give this your full attention.
