Hey everyone, quick question. I am wanting to buy the Harlequin Isolate and make my own hard candy out of it and was wondering if anyone had a good recipe?

Can I make it like I make regular hard candy? With corn syrup, sugar and flavoring? Or do I need to bring in anything like coconut oil? I have seen several different ways to make it online and I was curious if anyone here has made it and how they did it.

I have made hard candy before using the corn syrup, sugar, flavoring combo and it turned out great. So, I figured if I could do that and just pour the isolate in there toward the end when its time to pour it in candy molds, if it would work that way?

Thanks for the info

this is how I do it:

1 1/2 c sugar
3/4 cup light corn syrup, honey or agave (I use honey)
1/4 cup of infused coconut oil or butter (I use coconut oil)
1 large box jello or 2 small boxes

Add oil to sugar, stir well. Add syrup, honey or agave and add 1/2 cup water. Stir well. Water will help absorb extra heat so it doesn't burn. Bring to boiling slowly and stir often. When it reaches 300 degrees or you pull your wisk out of the pot and it looks like Angel hair, it's done. Pour onto LIGHTLY greased cookie sheet. Let cool and break apart with butt end of butter knife. Or you can score the sheet too make serving size squares then break apart after cool. Coat pieces in powdered sugar. helps keep it from sticking together so much. In the summer store with stay fresh packs to absorb extra moisture or it will stick together.

If you need to you can add a bit more water as it's reaching temp so it doesn't burn, but don't pull off until water is evaporated. Then stir in your jello at the end. Get it mixed in good then pour. If you heat it all to fast, your oil can separate so take your time and keep an eye on it.

Great thanks so much. Now, can I half this recipe just to try and make sure it works? I was thinking of trying it tomorrow and have already halfed the recipe, but curious if it can be halfed? Or should I make it as written?
I have a candy mold that I was going to use to make little candies for me to eat as opposed to making big large pieces. With MS, my choking hazard is higher so I tend to make things smaller.

Thanks again for the info
