Lemon Headies

These are a blast from the past candy for me.

You'll need

  • - 1 cup sugar
  • - ¼ cup HoneyBuzz
  • - 3-4 Tbsp water
  • - 2 tsp citric acid
  • - 2-3 drops all-natural yellow food coloring
  • Lemon flavoring

Let’s get cooking!

STEP 1

Place parchment paper into a small pan.

STEP 2

Place sugar, HoneyBuzz and water into a saucepan.

STEP 3

Bring to soft boil, stirring constantly.

STEP 4

Place candy thermometer into saucepan.

STEP 5

Do not stir any more at this point.

STEP 6

Once it reaches 310 degrees, remove from heat.

STEP 7

Allow the mix to sit for 30 seconds-1 minute.

STEP 8

Place a couple of drops of coloring, flavoring, and citric acid and stir.

STEP 9

Pour into parchment-lined pan.

STEP 10

Let it cool briefly for 4 minutes (you want the candy harden a little but still soft so you can cut through it).

STEP 11

Using kitchen scissors, cut into desired shapes.

STEP 12

Dust with powdered or fine-textured sugar (this keeps from the candy from sticking together).
