The kids in the cul-de-sac are going to go crazy when they see you’ve made these amazing Jawbreakers from Ed, Edd n Eddy!
(to make one half of a jawbreaker)
6 cups of sugar
2 cups of water
1 cup of corn syrup
Hard Candy flavoring
Begin by combining your sugar, water, and corn syrup in a pot on medium heat. Add in any food coloring you’d like at this point. Stir together until the ingredients have all melted together. Turn the heat up and add your candy thermometer. Let the mixture boil and heat until it reaches 300 degrees F. This will take anywhere from 10-25 minutes depending on the power of your stove. Be careful! Once the water fully evaporates the temperature will quickly increase so keep a close eye on the thermometer.
Oil your hemisphere pans. Once the mixture reaches 300F, turn off the heat (it will be VERY hot!) and add in any flavoring you’d like! We used watermelon for our big pink Jawbreaker in this episode.
Take note of how much coloring and flavoring you put into this half as you’re going to be replicating it for the second half of the jawbreaker. Once it’s mixed in, carefully pour out the contents of the mixture into your hemisphere bowls. Each batch should be able to fill up one half of your jawbreaker mold. If you have a larger pot, you can double the recipe, but we liked doing it in halves because this recipe can be very dangerous because of how hot it gets.
While the first half cools, go ahead and make your second batch and pour it into the second hemisphere mold. Finally once both halves are cooled (this will take anywhere from 3-6 hours), you can seal the deal by adding in a little more mixture in between the two and combining the halves VERY carefully.
Let that seal, and you’re onto the next part of the recipe! We made food safe coloring for our jawbreakers with 1 tsp of vodka and 1 pea sized drop of food coloring in small cups. Even though the vodka is alcoholic, it will be absorbed by the jawbreaker and not have any effect on the final products taste. Make as many colors as you’d like and use a toothbrush or paintbrush to splatter the colors all over the jawbreaker.
Once that’s dried, you’re all done! Jawbreakers from Ed, Edd, n Eddy. Now… how exactly are we supposed to eat this thing!?
