1 c. water

Directions:
Cook sugar, water and Karo Syrup to hard ball stage or when you can start to smell a scorch smell. Take off stove and pour in flavoring and coloring. Put sucker sticks in mold before pouring in syrup. Pour syrup in molds. Let set up and take off molds.

For fancy suckers: add 1/2 tsp. citric acid to the fruit flavors like watermelon, and green apple. It makes them sour. Kids love it.

Personal Notes:
This is the recipe I used when I sold suckers in 1983. These are great for birthday parties and school treats.
