Breaking Bad Candy Recipe | Video

Cook Up a Batch of (Legal) Breaking Bad Blue Meth Candy

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!

Heisenberg's Blue Sky (Breaking Bad Candy)

Heisenberg's Blue Sky (Breaking Bad Candy)


  1. 1/2 cup water
  2. 3/4 cup light corn syrup
  3. 2 cups granulated sugar
  4. 2 teaspoons flavoring extract, such as LorAnn
  5. 1 drop blue gel food coloring, such as Americolor Sky Blue


  1. Line a half-sheet pan with foil, and spray the foil with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

Mine was very sticky to. Impossible to eat. I was afraid to pull out a filling or two... Storing it in bags would be difficult to, as it would end up as many small pieces sticking together.

Thank you for the recipe. Cooked a batch and is very sticky. Did I do something wrong?

I cooked this but with brown sugar, is it any different? And it was too sticky, is it supposed to be like that?

Really, you people are seriously complaining about this?! First of all, this has NOTHING to do with people who actually struggle with substance abuse. In fact, I lost my daughter's father to addiction and I struggled with it for several years before getting help and I've now been in recovery for just about three years, and guess what? I am in NO way offended by this, I think it's cute and I am going to make it tomorrow for my Breaking Bad watch party. There are a lot of things people with addiction need to be mad about. They need to be mad that they are still being treated as criminals and not someone who is sick (which is what they are). They need to be mad that the general public view addicts as somehow less important (as in, oh, so and so passed away, but it's not really tragic because they overdosed and therefore did it to themselves. I've actually read that exact wording multiple times on the internet with over 50 thumbs up! WTF!) But, addicts do NOT need to be mad about a cute candy that somewhat resembles meth from an AMAZING television show. Seriously, get a grip.

I really wish the elderly would stop creaming their panties in the comments over candy inspired after a television series. Like "Tazolni" said, it is in fact aimed at a mature audience. And I however do not see how making a video showing a candy recipe for viewers who will understand that they aren't glorifying, but just making a reference to a drug-related show, should lead to you being "disappointed" or stop you from visiting this site. Don't get so butthurt, it's only the internet.

The show's themes are aimed at a more mature audience. Therefore, if you're mature enough to watch you should also be mature enough to understand this difference between candy and substance abuse.

This is the first time I've seen a Pop Sugar post...and it will be the last time. Making candy and naming it after an illicit drug?!?! I cannot believe anyone would actually think this is a good idea!

As the mother of a child who struggles with substance abuse I find this recipe/post in extremely BAD TASTE. It just glorifies drug abuse. I am very disappointed in pop sugar.
