This would be the reason that I don’t experiment! I highly recommend NOT trying Lemon-Head in making Rock Candy. It just doesn’t turn out right. Don’t get me wrong I LOVE Lemon-Head, I just didn’t like how my rock candy turned out with it. I loved the color, even the smell… the taste on the other hand… NOT SO GOOD…. If you have used a LEMON flavoring… PLEASE leave a comment and directions if you don’t mind!!!! PLEASE???
Above is how I went about my process of making Rock Candy! When we were little our mom made it every year for Christmas. This is the one candy that I always loved. I still don’t eat much of it, but now that she reminded me when she surprised me for Christmas the other year, I have been happy to try to make it every year! It makes wonderful gifts for the teachers and our neighbors~
This is what the good stuff looks like! I made Cinnamon using the Red Hots and Peppermint using liquid flavoring! It’s so pretty the coloring this year!
Then of course… my dreaded cookie making. I swore the other year that… I WOULD NEVER VOLUNTEER AGAIN TO MAKE SUGAR COOKIES. I should have stuck with those words… because as you can see… I stink at it! And this was a project requested by the teacher… Needless to say, it’s a good thing that they were for Pre-K kids!!! They were decorating them so I’m sure some were broken before they paid much attention. And I even used the pre-made dough, if that helps!!
I know I’m late on my postings, but I am going to try to get back in touch, with this. I have been so down in the dumps, and dealing with pain, and trying to get everyone in my household healthy again that I let my blog go by the wayside. I’m sorry and hope to do better, and I hope that you will stick with me!
Any suggestions on making the Lemon flavored Rock Candy? Please feel free to leave a note! Or even on how to make good Sugar Cookies in case I get nominated again… you see I have a weakness… I don’t like to say NO>…..
