Skip The Stove: Make Twisted Candy In Your Microwave

Sprinkle Bakes

Working with sugar can often feel like a losing battle. It involves precise temperatures and constant stirring, or no stirring and there could be crystals and suddenly you find yourself wondering why you didn't take on something more simple for your holiday edibles list. But this recipe skips the stove and keeps you in control by using your microwave!

We're suckers for color and anything sparkly in general, so when we came across this pretty twisted candy over at Sprinkle Bakes we were instantly intrigued. Although working with sugar can feel complicated and out of reach for some, this recipe keeps you in control and makes things manageable, even for first time sugar workers.

The recipe is a simple combination of corn syrup (though we bet you could use Emma's Homemade Cane Syrup with great results!), granulated sugar, flavoring oil and food coloring. Once heated it's cut into strips and twisted up before allowing to cool completely. You could turn your holiday table into a winter wonderland with glassware full of these sweet treats, or give them as gifts!
