3 3/4 cups sugar
1 cup water
1 1/4 cup light karo syrup
red food coloring
1/2 t. cinnamon oil
Sprinkle powdered sugar onto 2 cookie sheets. Use a sifter for even coverage.
Combine sugar karo, and water in a heavy saucepan. Cook over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Continue to cook, not stirring until it reaches 290 degrees on a candy thermometer. Remove from heat and add a few drops of food coloring and the cinnamon oil.
Pour onto cookie sheets, and sprinkle again with powdered sugar. Cool and break into pieces
