Homemade Hard Candy with Coating Pan Attachment


  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup light corn syrup
  • Food coloring (gel or liquid)
  • Flavoring extract or oil (peppermint, cinnamon, fruit flavors, etc.)
  • Powdered sugar (for dusting)

Special Equipment:

  • Coating pan attachment
  • Candy thermometer


1. Prepare the Coating Pan Attachment:

  • Make sure the coating pan attachment is clean and dry before use.

2. Cook the Candy Mixture:

  • In a medium saucepan, combine granulated sugar, water, and light corn syrup. Stir over medium heat until the sugar dissolves.

  • Insert a candy thermometer into the mixture and let it come to a boil. Do not stir once the mixture is boiling.

  • Continue boiling until the candy mixture reaches the "hard crack" stage, which is around 300°F (150°C). This is the temperature at which the candy will harden when cooled.

3. Add Color and Flavor:

  • Once the candy mixture reaches the desired temperature, carefully remove the saucepan from the heat source.

  • Stir in a few drops of food coloring and the flavoring extract or oil of your choice. Adjust the amount to your taste.

4. Load the Coating Pan:

  • Place the candy mixture into the coating pan attachment.

5. Start the Coating Process:

  • Turn on the coating pan attachment to start the rotation process. The rotating drum will evenly distribute the candy mixture over the candies.

6. Allow the Candy to Cool:

  • Let the coating pan attachment run for several minutes, allowing the candy mixture to evenly coat the candies.

7. Dust and Cool:

  • While the candies are still in the coating pan attachment, dust them lightly with powdered sugar. This helps prevent the candies from sticking together.

8. Remove and Cool:

  • Turn off the coating pan attachment and carefully remove the coated candies.

  • Spread the coated candies onto a parchment-lined baking sheet or tray to cool and fully set.

9. Store:

  • Once the coating is fully set, transfer the coated hard candies to an airtight container, separating layers with wax paper to prevent sticking.

Using a coating pan attachment adds a professional touch to your homemade hard candies, creating an even and consistent coating. Experiment with colors, flavors, and shapes to make a variety of delicious and visually appealing candies. Enjoy your homemade creations!
