Yield: 1 Servings
|¼ cup||Light corn syrup|
|¼ teaspoon||Cream of tartar|
|Oil of peppermint|
Combine all ingredients in a large, heavy saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved and the mixture comes to a boil. Cover and cook for 3 minutes so that any sugar crystals on sides of pan will be washed down by condensation. Uncover and cook to the soft-ball ~ 238F - without stirring. Remove from heat and let stand for 3 minutes to cool slightly. Flavor with about 10 drops of oil of peppermint, then beat until creamy without scraping the side of pan. Drop candy by the teaspoon onto foil to make patties. Allow to dry, then dip in Chocolate Coating.
Store, tightly covered, in the refrigerator.
