Just because we found a wacky recipe for something, does it mean we have to use it? icon_wink.gif lol (sarcasm never types well!)

Let me know how that works out for you! thumbs_up.gif

Please, take it with the sense of humor I'm sending. The headline was a riot!

scientifically speaking according to the recipe, I dont think you could use liquid.

why: recipe.. When you put the candy in your mouth, the sugar dissolves, and the citric acid and baking soda combine,

It sounds as if you need the crystals. maybe they dont melt completely at the temp given. if you add liquid it might react immediately.. which could also be fun!!

darn, where can i get the crystals do you think?
post #9 of 21
the quickest place to get them in at a liquor store that sells homebrew supplies. THey are like $3.50 a container.

Hubby homebrews or i would have no idea, except from cake supply shops.

amazon sell them, too. and shopbakersnook.com

ok got the citric acid!

Now just one more question.

In the recipe it calls for " a small about of water and a small amount of corn syrup"

How much should I use? I was thinking a tbsp of both.
