This was posted by one of my friends just a month ago, and it was so intriguing I had to try it on the spot! They came out wonderful! They got better as they aged, as in, about five days after I made them, they were even better. Great in hot chocolate, great just to munch.
2 envelopes Knox unflavoured gelatin (or 15g of powdered gelatine)
1/2 c. cold water
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Sprinkle gelatin in 1/2 cup cold water and vanilla extract in mixing bowl. It'll swell while you're working with the rest of the recipe.
In a saucepan, combine:
1/2 c. light Karo Syrup (or clear Glucose syrup)
3/4 c. water
1 3/4 c. white sugar
Dash of salt
Bring to a boil until approximately 235°F (115°C) or, soft ball stage.
Pour boiling syrup onto softened gelatin and beat with a mixer at highest speeds until it becomes light and fluffy and holds a soft mound. (This takes about ten-fifteen minutes.) If you don't get enough air in it, they don't set up.
Pour into a buttered 9x12" pan or individual molds. Let set about thirty minutes.
