The holiday season has come and gone but we are so excited for what’s in store this year!

While browsing through Target the other day we noticed all the yummy Valentine’s Day treats that had hit the shelves and we were inspired to create a treat of our own! (It’s never too early to start preparing right?)

So today we are sharing a DELICIOUS Cinnamon Sucker recipe that we think you’re going to love! These suckers would make the cutest addition to your Valentine’s Day parties next month or the perfect treat for your kiddos to handout to their friends. However you choose to use them, they are sure to be a hit!

Ingredients:

2 Cups Granulated Sugar

2/3 Cup Light Corn Syrup

3/4 Cup Water

1 Dram (1tsp.) LorAnn Gourmet cinnamon flavoring

crushed red hots

Powder Sugar (optional)                                                                                                                      

Candy Sucker Molds

Directions:

Combine sugar, corn syrup, and water into 2 quart saucepan. Stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Bring mixture to a boil without stirring.

While the mixture is boiling, spray molds lightly with oil, place crushed red hots into the candy molds.

Remove from heat at 300 degrees. After boiling action ceases stir in flavoring. AVOID rising steam when stirring. Pour syrup into lightly oiled candy mold (I found all my fun ones at Hobby Lobby) or onto greased cookie sheet and score with knife to form bite size pieces. When cool, break into pieces and dust with powder sugar (optional) to prevent sticking and store in an air tight container. Will keep for 2 weeks
