2 cups sugar
1/2 cup light Karo syrup
1/2 cup water
Stir over low heat until dissolved. Turn heat to high.
Using a candy thermometer cook until temperature reads
310 F. REMOVE IMMEDIATELY and pour into an 8" greased
metal pan. After a few minutes check for firmness and
when you can cut and a top imprint holds, start cutting
with a knife one way in one inch sections, turn pan and make
one inch squares. Continuously cut squares, working fast,
until squares are almost cut through to the bottom. Turn
out into wax paper, and finish breaking by hand.
