Please make sure there are no little ones running around in the kitchen while you are handling the hot sugar and make sure your mold is made to handle hot sugar.
In a small saucepan, mix together sugar, corn syrup and water. Insert a candy thermometer. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat without stirring.
When the temperature reaches 250° (soft crack) add the food coloring. (This will take about 12 minutes) Gently swirl the pan to mix in the color or stir. Continue to cook the syrup until the mixture reaches 300° (hard crack). (This will take another 3 to 5 minutes) Take the pan off the heat and stir in the cherry oil.
Pour into a glass Pyrex measuring cup. This will help make the pouring process easier. Cool completely before removing candy from the molds. TIP: If some of the candy sticks to the mold and you have a uneven look. Just dampen a paper towel and rub the area until it looks even or if you over flow the candy mold just trim the cooled candy with scissors.
