Let’s be brutally honest. You can’t make a Murdered Cupcake without some Edible Candy Glass and a few drops (ok a lot of drops) of edible fake blood. You also can’t make all sorts of other fun things that I just can’t even think about right now, because I’m so excited about this recipe. Basically, it’s like the fun tool for Halloween dessert decorating that I never thought I’d be able to make…Frankly, I love it.
Or, maybe I’m in love because I’ve been up for almost 48 hours straight with two screaming kids in my ear and dogs howling in response. Seriously–as if I don’t hear the baby crying, the dog has to cry too? Torture. Pure, unadulterated torture. I need another batch of Edible Candy Glass Recipe just to keep me on a sugar-high enough to stay awake and finish this post…what a tragedy! LOL!
Tools You Need to Make Edible Candy Glass
Alright, so pin this so you can find the recipe for Edible Candy Glass later. You know, closer to Halloween–or maybe for some fun stained-glass action over the holidays…you know, because broken glass makes so much sense suddenly for Christmas and New Years…man, I need sleep. LOL!
Edible Candy Glass Recipe
- 2 cups granulated white sugar
- ¾ cups of water
- ⅔ cups light corn syrup
- flavoring oil if desired (I did not use any for this but have used coconut in the past and it is divine!)
- candy thermometer
- In a medium saucepan add in the sugar, corn syrup, and water.
- Insert the candy thermometer and bring to a boil. Stir constantly until the thermometer reaches 300 degrees.
- Once at 300 degrees, remove from heat and transfer immediately to a baking pan (lined with wax paper or sprayed with nonstick).
- Allow it to sit until hardened (about 2 hours). Make sure to cover it while it sits.
- Once hardened lift the pan up and drop straight down to crack the glass. Repeat until you have fragments at a desired size.
