It's time to break bad — the legal way — by cooking up a batch of Heisenberg's Blue Sky . . . rock candy, that is! Bid a fond farewell to the provacative show (the series finale airs Sept. 29) by simmering it up on your stove, no special lab equipment required. Then, divvy it up into baggies to share with your friends as you tune in to find out what's next for Walter White, Jesse Pinkman, and crew. Watch our video to see how it's done, and for some candy-making tips and fun facts about the show. Then, check out the recipe and get to it!
- Line a half-sheet pan with foil, and spray the foil with nonstick cooking spray.
- In a medium saucepan, combine the water, corn syrup, and granulated sugar. Place the pan over medium-high heat, and stir until the sugar dissolves. Bring the mixture to a boil, then stop stirring and brush down the sides with a wet pastry brush to prevent sugar crystals from forming. Insert a candy thermometer.
- Continue to cook the candy without stirring until it reads 285°F on the thermometer. Do not overcook it, or it will start to take on a caramel color and your candy might turn green. Once at 285°F, take the pan off the heat and let it sit for a few moments, until bubbles stop breaking on the surface. Add the flavoring and food coloring, and stir everything together.
- Pour the candy onto the prepared baking sheet; tilt the sheet pan so it becomes an even, thin layer. Let it set up at room temperature.
- Once it's set, break it into small pieces with a mallet. Divvy it up into plastic baggies or an airtight container of your choice.
