There are recipes, time-tested, whichfamiliar from childhood. They are easy to prepare and available in the composition of the ingredients. To make New Year's candy, you need to take sugar and water. We take these two ingredients in equal proportions. Pour the sugar into a saucepan and add water. Put the container on the fire and bring the mixture to a boil.Constantly stir the syrup with a spoon. Then reduce the fire to a minimum and cook until the appearance of amber color. Next, to get the candy, pour the mixture quickly into cold water. But this is the way to get shapeless candies. To make them beautiful, use special molds. So do New Year candies on a stick.
Not always at hand there are forms for makingsweets. But you can use improvised means. We take ordinary spoons of large size and lubricate them with vegetable oil. Then we pour the prepared syrup into them and put them into cold water. So, New Year's candies are made of oval shape. They can be wrapped in beautiful wrapping paper. If after pouring into any form into the syrup stick a stick or toothpick, it will be convenient to eat these sweets.
These sweets always gave pleasureadults and children. The absence of flavor additives makes them natural and safe. This is another reason to make New Year candies with your own hands. Take for cooking 250 grams of sugar, half a small spoon of lemon acid and 100 milliliters of water. It is also necessary to prepare parchment paper, silicone mat, wooden sticks and biscuit molds made of metal.Mix sugar with water and cook syrup forsome time. Fire do the minimum, so that the mixture is not burned (otherwise the candy will be bitter). In the end, add the lemon acid. We spread the parchment paper on a silicone mat and lubricate it with vegetable oil. So New Year candy candies can be easily separated from paper. Now you can gently pour the mass onto the parchment or pour it into the molds. We twist the sticks in the still not frozen candies. When the candy is ready, we remove the form and separate the paper. Delicious treat is ready.
To please children, you need to cookbeautiful, original candy. Such you will not find on the shelves of stores, and their quality will be much higher. It takes 4 large spoons of sugar, a large spoonful of water, half a spoonful of wine vinegar, wooden sticks and any beautiful powder. To make New Year's candy is even more delicious, use natural juice instead of water.
The cooking technology is almost the same. Water is mixed with sugar and put the container on the fire. Boil the syrup to the desired consistency (about 10 minutes). Then you can add cinnamon or vanilla flavor. The tray is covered with parchment paper and put in the refrigerator (refrigerate so that the syrup does not spill much). Next, pour out the sweet mixture and insert wooden sticks. We leave it until it is completely solidified.
The shape of sweets can be arbitrary. It is not necessary to make New Year's candy canes, you can choose any options. We offer to cook candy cookies. To do this, take 200 grams of flour, 40 grams of sugar, 100 grams of butter, one egg, half a small spoon of baking powder. We take ready-made lollipops (30 pieces). Flour sifted with a baking powder in a bowl. Then add there soft butter, sugar and egg.
Of all the ingredients, knead the dough,wrap it in a film and put it in the refrigerator for about half an hour. Then we take out the dough and roll it out not too thinly. We cut out cookies with molds, spread it on a baking tray, and in the middle - make a hole. We put candies in it, and also make a small hole for the rope (to hang the candy cookies on the Christmas tree). Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes. From the top, the biscuits can be greased with yolk and sprinkled with sugar, cinnamon, poppy or nuts. It turns out a very original delicacy.
Lollipops can be used not only as aindependent delicacy. They are used to decorate cakes and other baking. If you add natural juice, you will get a fragrant dessert. The shape of the sweets also depends on your imagination and possibilities. You can make animal figurines (if there are molds) or New Year's candy sticks. To make an orange delicacy, you need to take 250 grams of sugar, 100 milliliters of orange juice, two large spoons of honey and a small spoonful of olive oil.The juice can be bought ready or squeezed fresh.
