Hey guys, it's Ro, welcome to another Nerdy Nummies I got so many requests from you guys to make another recipe from the Nerdy Nummies cookbook So that's exactly what we're gonna be doing today Gems and stones can be found in so many different video games including one of my favorite games, Zelda You collect a little rupees, so today we are gonna be making rupee hard candies The recipe is a simple hard candy recipe, which you can dye to be different colors And we're gonna be using the mold from my baking line We're gonna be using this shape this gem shape is a hexagon which means it has six sides And it's the most similar looking to a rupie I just love this gem mold It's so cute And it has shapes that I have been wanting for a really long time

And side note, you guys our swirl silicone mold was trending number one on Amazon for molds If you want to help this mold become number one mold on Amazon, I'll put a link down below because if this becomes number one then the poo mold becomes number two (laughing) In the book, I dyed the rupies red blue and green because I felt those were the most iconic But I really love this recipe because you can make them any color you want Today, we're gonna be making the same hard candies with the same colors, but I'm gonna be using different flavors Let's get started! The things you'll need to make these hard candies will be: a mold I'm using the mold from my baking line And I'm only gonna be using the hexagon shapes For the recipe, you'll need three cups of sugar 3/4 cup water, 1 cup of light corn syrup, 1 teaspoon of blueberry oil

1 drop a blue dye 1 teaspoon of strawberry oil, one drop of red dye, one teaspoon of green apple oil, and one drop of green dye now Let's put it all together! The ingredients in front of me is enough to make 3 different colors I like to make mine one at a time because when you're working with hot candy I don't like to separate it and move it around too much because it's just so hot the first thing that we're gonna do is Take 1/3 of our sugar water and corn syrup and pour them into a pot Pour our sugar, that means we'll need 1 cup then We'll need a quarter cup of water and a third cup of corn syrup Woah! (laughing) There we go! Then we add the one drop of food coloring I'm gonna start with green because I'm wearing a green shirt and the flavoring that we're using is apple And I just love apple hard candy so start with the good stuff It's all good, but this is just like my favorite Use a toothpick to scoop, it in mix together until all the sugar is wet now We'll take this sauce pot over to the stove

Place your pot onto the stove turn the heat to medium and allow the sugar to completely dissolve Once dissolved, place the candy thermometer into your pot and cook the candy until it reaches 275 degrees Then, turn off the stove heat and take your candy syrup back to the baking station Once you take your hard candy off the stove, pour immediately into a heat safe container with a pour spout at the end And before we pour the candy into the mold add your Flavoring I'm using green apple! Whisk together work that flavoring in there

Oh yeah! Now pour your hot candy syrup into your mold and be careful because it's very hot I'm only filling them about 2/3 because I want them to be a little bit more bite-sized Once you've poured the candy, let them sit for 45 minutes to harden While this sits, I'm gonna make a couple more batches using our other colors You can do it this way if you have multiple molds otherwise just wait till they've hardened and repeat I've given the candies plenty of time to harden Pop them out, it's super easy This is one of the reasons why I love Silicone molds because they're bendy! Tug this way, tug, tug, tug, stretch it out, and the other way, then flip it upside down and pop 'em out! These look amazing! Oh my gosh you guys! Now do this for the rest of your candy Tada! There you have it here are the rupee hard candies that we made today

The recipe is from the Nerdy Nummies cookbook But, we switched the flavorings We made green apple flavored, blueberry, and strawberry One of the things that I love about hard candy recipes, is it's very customizable You can make your hard candies any colors you'd like and any flavor growing up one of my favorite candies were Jolly Ranchers So I love making a homemade hard candy recipe

Easy-peasy bite-sized and delicious! omnomnomnomnom I'll be taking lots of pictures and posting the recipe on rosannapansinocom Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, so you can check it out there, and if you guys make these little hard candies Please take a picture and send it to me I love seeing your baking creations It just makes me happy!

  1. If you only use the hexagon ones, doesn’t the rest of the candy harden in the pot while you’re waiting to pour the next batch?
