5 minute Microwave Hard Candy Honey Drops Recipe
What You Need
  • Honey Drops
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 th cup light Karo syrup
  • 1/4 th cup honey we used an organic fall flavored honey from our farmers market and it was great!
  • powdered sugar optional
  • food coloring/flavoring optional
  1. Mix your granulated sugar, Karo and honey in a microwave safe glass bowl. Cover with Cling wrap. Spray your molds lightly with non-stick spray.
  2. Place microwave safe bowl in microwave on high for 3 minutes. Remove (I suggest oven mitts!) and CAREFULLY remove plastic wrap. Steam WILL come out and you WILL burn your hands/fingers/face if you do not take care to peel it off away from you.
  3. Quickly stir the mixture (which will likely have bubbles) and add a new piece of cling wrap plastic. Place back in microwave for 2 minutes.
  4. Set your mold tray on a cookie sheet with cold water underneath.
  5. Remove the melted mixture and pour into oiled molds. I used a little scoop to pour.
  6. Let set (5 -10 minutes) and then pop out of molds. They should slide out with no issues.
  7. Now you can lightly dust with powdered sugar for storage.
