Try-It Tuesday - Autumn Candy Making

Candy Corn
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup white corn syrup
1/3 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup powdered milk
food coloring (optional)

Combine sugar, butter, and corn syrup in pan and bring to a boil stirring Constantly. Turn heat low and boil 5 minutes. Stir occasionally. Remove from heat and add vanilla. In a separate dish, combine powdered sugar, salt, and powdered milk. Add all at once to the mixture in the pan. Add food coloring if desired. Stir until cool enough to handle. Shape into creative pieces.

Suzy made the pumpkin. David made the rose - for me! How sweet is THAT from a thirteen-year-old boy? They all were very creative! This recipe makes a LOT. Plenty for all four of mine to be happy creating for a while.
