Giant Kerplunk!! this was the hit of father's day. the link for instructions is posted next to this pin on the same board. I used 3/8" x 3' square dowels instead of the bamboo plant sticks. The bamboo did not work very well. My mother (89 years) and one of my grandsons (3 years) loved playing it. Have fun!
Homemade Candy Corn Recipe - how cute is this for the of July? Ingredients 2 cups confectioners’ sugar cup dry powdered milk teaspoon salt 1 cup sugar cup corn syrup cup unsalted butter 1 teaspoon vanilla extract food coloring
ICE CREAM in 5 minutes :) In a small Ziplock bag, put: 1/2 C. half and half (milk works too) 1 Tbps. sugar 1 tsp. vanilla... want to try frozen fruit in it next time, too. Insert that bag into a larger, one gallon Ziplock filled with ice and salt. Shake the bag for five minutes. Kids love that part! Then, remove the smaller bag which should have turned into ice cream.
NO WAY!!! Rock Candy: 2 cups water, 1 cup white corn syrup, 3 1/2 cups sugar, 1/4 tsp cream of tartar. Then I added: 1/4 tsp vanilla extract, 3 drops of blue gel food coloring. I boiled the mixture and then continued stirring it on the heat until it reached 300 degrees F (used a candy thermometer to measure the temp). At that point, I poured it into a tray to cool. It hardened up in about an hour and then I smashed it to pieces.
