A Fun Recipe – Cherry Fizz Candy

It is time to start baking for Christmas!  We do a fun extended family and friends Christmas candy and cookie making night each year.  We have our standard favorites: fudge, buckeyes, chocolate dipped everything.  Nothing says Christmas like pulling out my Grammy’s Marshmallow Fudge recipe.   Some years we like to try something new.  Sometimes it works out.  Sometimes not.  This year I came across a recipe in Saveur that has some pizzazz and fits the Christmas candy theme – Cherry Fizz Candy!  It is like homeade pop rocks, but has more of a tangy fizz than a pop.

Cherry Fizz Candy


1 cup plus 3 Tbsp. sugar
2 tbsp. light corn syrup
12 tsp. baking soda
34 tsp. cherry-flavored Kool-Aid or other drink mix
12 tsp. powdered citric acid or 3 Tbsp. lemon juice


Line a baking sheet with parchment. In a saucepan, combine the sugar with the corn syrup, and 2 12 tablespoons water. With a candy thermometer, and bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook the syrup, without stirring, until the thermometer reads 300°, 8 to 10 minutes.
Remove the pan from the heat and carefully stir in the baking soda, Kool-Aid, and citric acid. Quickly pour the syrup onto the prepared baking sheet in one move, then let stand to cool completely. Smash the candy into bite-size pieces, and store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
And now for an update on our contest.  The winner is Diana!  She gets to choose one of these fun onesies.

If you missed the contest, you have one more chance!  Choose your favorite post on Never A Doll Moment.  Re-post it on any of your social media platforms.  Show me that you posted it by pasting the link in my comment box below.  If my site thinks you are a robot, just let me know.  It gets a little over-protective at times, ever since the crown prince of Madagascar tried to leave me his fortune, needing only my bank account information to get the process started.  The contest ends December 9th, the date of the next small business boutique where I will have a table.

Happy posting!
For another fun recipe try my chocolate avocado pudding.
