Serves 16
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup water
1 cup any Enjoy Life Seed and Fruit Mix (I like Mountain Mambo)
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1 teaspoon baking soda
Grease a large cookie sheet. Set aside.
In a heavy 2 quart saucepan, over medium heat, bring to a boil sugar, corn syrup, salt, and water. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Stir in Seed and Fruit Mix. Set candy thermometer (you can get one at your local grocery store) in place, and continue cooking. Stir frequently until temperature reaches 300 F or until a small amount of mixture dropped into very cold water separates into hard and brittle threads.
Remove from heat; immediately stir in butter and baking soda; pour at once onto cookie sheet. Let cool and snap candy into pieces.
