cinnamon hard candy


I almost hate to add this one, in case I decide to make this for friends this year at Christmas.  My mom makes this pretty much every year and it’s a pretty treat to give in clear bags or cute tins.  The powdered sugar keeps the candy pieces from sticking together. 

Using a jelly roll pan isn’t essential, but it helps thin it out… you could use two smaller rimmed cookie sheets instead if you don’t have a jelly roll (like me!).  Also, the oil of cinnamon must be purchased from a pharmacist.  It’s behind the counter because it’s so strong and can burn you if you broke the jar onto your skin.  Just ask for it – it’s not prescription!  Just be careful not to let little hands get a hold of it.
