Red Rock Candy

2 cups sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup red cinnamon candies
1 teaspoon butter

Combine sugar, corn syrup and water in a saucepan, cook over low heat stirring until sugar dissolves. Cook to soft ball stage, or 234 to 243 degrees on a candy thermometer. Stir in cinnamon candies, cook to hard ball stage or 250 to 269 on a candy thermometer, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and add butter stir slightly. Pour onto a greased baking sheet. When cool, break into pieces. Makes about a pound.

Can add alittle red food coloring to make it redder.
