I have done this in Lemon and will try cinnamon soon. I just got my cinnamon oil. It works great. I just pour mine onto a buttered sheet pan so it is easier to cut. Last time I just used brown sugar, water, and vanilla flavoring to make a caramel flavored. It was good. I decided to leave out the corn syrup and that worked okay too.
Homemade Gumdrops-fresher than anything you can buy. Makes a great food gift, adjust the flavors and colors for any occasion
