F o o d i e : S r i r a c h a W h i s k y C a n d i e s

These candies are definitely an interesting flavor combo! The whisky lends a smokey caramel flavor while the heat from the Sriracha sneaks up on you. This was my first attempt at making candy but it was so easy I think I'll try it again with some other flavor combos!

1 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1/8 cup corn syrup
1 TB sriracha

1 TB whisky
cooking spray, for the mold

To Make:
Grease a mold with cooking spray.
Combine the sugar, water and corn syrup in a saucepan. Stir to combine, then heat over medium high heat with a candy thermometer clipped to the side of the pan.
 Don't let the thermometer touch the bottom of the pan.
Watch until the sugar mixture reaches 300 degrees. Immediately remove it from the heat.

Add in the sriracha and whisky. Carefully stir with a silicone spatula  (the mixture will steam and bubble). Once it stops, pour the mixture into a glass measuring cup, then slowly pour the mixture into the mold. Work very quickly during this step, as  the mixture starts to harden very rapidly! This was the messiest step for me.  It definitely takes some practice to get a nice pour into the mold.
Allow the candies to fully harden before removing from the mold.
