I can’t think of a better way to celebrate National Hard Candy Day (cue Dolly Parton) than by making my own edible sweets and treats. It’s likely you’ll be as surprised as I was to find out just how easy it is to make hard candy bites in the comfort of your own kitchen, and you’ll go and try it for the sake of national holiday celebrating. Celebrate we will.
Needless to say, I think you’ll be happy with this recipe, and no one is going to stop you from making only the flavors you prefer, like cherry and grape and that new delicious blended concoction, cherrygrape. With inexpensive ingredients (the mold and flavor may only run you $3-$5 and you probably have the other ingredients stocked in your pantry), DIY hard candies will be a sure addition to your seasonal to-do list.
