1½ cups DaVinci Gourmet Sugar Free Syrup
1 cup erythritol (sugar substitute)
½ tsp candy flavoring oil
Spray a candy mold with nonstick vegetable spray. Add DaVinci Gourmet Sugar Free Syrup and erythritol to a saucepan, mix and bring to a boil. Use a candy thermometer to make sure the mixture reaches 300º, then remove the saucepan from heat. Allow the mixture to sit until it stops bubbling, then immediately add the candy flavoring oil and food coloring and stir well. Pour the mixture into the candy mold and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Remove the candies from the refrigerator, twist into plastic wrappers and enjoy!
