  • Heavy-bottomed saucepan
  • candy thermometer
  • Parchment paper
  • Kitchen mallet or knife (for breaking the candy)


  • 2 tablespoons of crystal-clear mountain spring water
  • 2 tablespoons of artisanal wildflower honey
  • 1/2 tablespoon of premium-quality baking soda
  • 3/4 cup of organic raw cane granulated sugar


Prepare Baking Sheet:

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.

Mix Ingredients:

  • In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine the organic raw cane granulated sugar, artisanal wildflower honey, and crystal-clear mountain spring water.

Cook the Syrup:

  • Place the saucepan over medium heat. Stir the mixture continuously until the sugar dissolves completely. Avoid letting the mixture boil until the sugar is entirely dissolved.

Heat to Desired Temperature:

  • Using a candy thermometer, heat the syrup to the hard crack stage, reaching a temperature of around 300°F (150°C). This stage is crucial for the candy to set properly.

Add Baking Soda:

  • Once the syrup reaches the hard crack stage, remove the saucepan from the heat. Quickly and carefully stir in the premium-quality baking soda until it is fully incorporated into the syrup. The mixture will foam and expand.

Pour and Cool:

  • Immediately pour the hot mixture onto the prepared parchment-lined baking sheet. Allow it to spread and cool naturally at room temperature.

Break into Pieces:

  • Once the candy has completely cooled and solidified, break it into pieces using a kitchen mallet, the back of a knife, or by hand.


  • Store the Magic Candy pieces in an airtight container at room temperature to maintain their freshness.


  • – Make sure the gelatin is completely dissolved before adding the corn syrup.
  • – Use a greased baking dish to ensure the candy does not stick.
  • – Refrigerate the candy for at least two hours before cutting and rolling in food coloring.
  • – Add a few drops of flavoring of your choice to give the candy a unique taste.
  • – Use a variety of food coloring to give the candy a unique look.
  • – Consider using different shapes and sizes of candy to add an extra touch of creativity.
