Sriracha Suckers| Add a little spice to your next Fiesta Party with these fun and delicious Sriracha Suckers! These cute little spicy suckers make the perfect party favor or fun treat. Add a splash of color to your party table with jars of colored rice filled with Sriracha Suckers!
I love adding fun treats to my tablescape. I placed the Sriracha Suckers in mason jars. To hold them in place, I poured colors or dyed rice that matched my color theme. Using colored rice is the most inexpensive way to dress up a party or dinner table. Click here to find out how to dye rice—->>>>HOW TO COLOR RICE
Make sure to choose a mold that is made specifically for hot or hard candy not just chocolate. Usually the plastic molds (for hot or hard candy) are white and not clear. You can also use silicone molds. Also, making candy is not something you want to be doing around little ones.
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 2/3 cup light corn syrup
- 2/3 cup water
- 2 tablespoons sriracha sauce, divided
- orange gel food coloring
- optional: cayenne pepper
In a 2 quart saucepan stir together the sugar, corn syrup, and water. Insert a candy thermometer into the mixture. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium high heat. Continue to heat without stirring until the bubbling mixture reaches 244°. Drop one level tablespoon Sriracha sauce into the bubbling mixture - DO NOT STIR. When the mixture reaches the hard crack stage remove pan from heat. Stir in the remaining 1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce and food coloring. BE CAREFUL THE MIXTURE WILL BUBBLE AND SPUTTER. When the mixture has stopped bubbling, pour into a glass Pyrex measuring cup. This will help make the pouring process easier. Pour hot candy into candy mold. While the candy is still hot (for an extra layer of hear) add a sprinkle of the cayenne pepper. Let suckers cool completely. Store in a airtight container.
