Ingredients

  • Sugar (395g)
  • Liquid glucose (170g)
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cream of tartar
  • Water (250 milliliters)
  • A sugar thermometer

Steps

  1. Line 2 large baking trays with foil.
  2. Chuck the sugar, liquid glucose, cream of tartar and water into a large saucepan over a medium high heat.
  3. Heat the mixture, whilst stirring, until it reaches 300°F (150°C). It will take a while and will reduce a lot.
  4. Pour the molten sugar over the lined baking trays very carefully when it reach 300°F (150°C) and tilt the trays to get a very thin layer of 'glass'.
  5. Set aside at room temperature for a few hours to ensure it sets.
  6. Very carefully peel the foil away from the sugar glass.
  7. Destroy your sugar glass in any way you want avoiding eyes!
