If you use isomalt it will stay clear. Real sugar will turn amber... good luck..

If you cook it too long it will start to burn, turning yellow first. So you have to watch it VERY closely. I prefer to use a microwave hard candy recipe, with or without the flavoring. Usually it is less corn syrup than sugar. Also, there is no need to change the power settings. Everything can be done on high. Just remember, every microwave varies in wattage so you have to experiment with yours or watch it very carefully. HTH

That is exactly the same as the recipe I use except I don't use plastic wrap at all. Also, a glass measuring cup with a spout makes pouring it a lot easier. Good luck!
