  • In a pot, mix together the sugar, corn syrup and 1/4 cup water. Stir until the sugar is incorporated and wet, then bring to a gentle boil over medium high heat, swirling occasionally to distribute the heat. Heat until the mixture reaches 240°-245°F. When the sugar mix comes to temp, remove it from the heat and let the bubbles subside. Sprinkle in a bit of salt and add the mint extract to the gelatin. Carefully pour the sugar into the bowl of the stand mixer.
