Today me and my mum tried to make Turkish delight but our cream of tartar was so old that is when we found out how to make hard candy! Try this recipe for old grandmas and grandpas for their birthdays and they will love it. Try it for yourself you will find the results are 5 star!!!

Serves: 4 

  • 2 cups caster sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornflour
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon rose water
  • 1-2 drops red food colouring

Preparation:5min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Extra time:1hour chilling  ›  Ready in:1hour15min 

  1. Combine the caster sugar, cornflour and water in a microwave-safe small bowl.
  2. Microwave on high for 7 min, stir, do this again if still runny. Microwave for 2 more min.
  3. Using a pair of oven mittens, carefully remove from heat and stir in the rose water and red food colouring.
  4. When cool transfer to a refrigerator until it is chilled.
  5. Cut with a big knife and be creative! Do swells and lollipop shapes to decorate.


Instead of rose water or if you don't have it use lemon or mint/peppermint essence. Add 1 teaspoon of cream of tartar to make it Turkish delight.
