Make sure to gather all equipment and ingredients prior to starting.Â Do not put face over pot when adding oils as they are very strong.Â As soon as candy is poured soak pot and spoon in hot soapy water. Candy will melt with the warm water.Â Note that you can make this on the stove top using these direction but it will take considerably longer.Â Note cooking will take slightly longer in a 6-quart versus a 3-quart but cooking time increases only a few minutes for each stage.Â Nutrition information does not include powdered sugar.Â Must make one flavor and one color in a single batch each time.Â Oils can be purchased from Lorann Oils.
