Do you want to make the ice from sugar or gelatin?

melt sugar with some water and clear karo until hard crack stage, pour it out onto a grease cookie sheet, score it into squares, let set, break.

Flavor it with a little mint for a holiday treat. icon_smile.gif

There are recipes all over online. I can't remember the ratio. It is the recipe for lollipops.

Thanks 2508s42. icon_smile.gif

I also thought sugar was the way to go... so I'll be moving this to the Sugar forum.

Someone said to add glucose syrup? does anyone know how or where to get glucose syrup? Also, thanks, 2508s42.

I never bought it but I think they sell glucose at Michaels and on GSA.

It's probably too late but I saw this post when I was searching for myself on how to make ice. I used the recipe found at the link below. I lined ice cube trays with parchment paper and poured the sugar in. When they were cooled I popped the cubes out and peeled off the paper. They were slightly matte from the paper, so I brushed them lightly with warm water and got the glossy finish back. They came out great!

If you use Isomalt instead of sugar, you won't have problems with yellowing.. I made mine and poured it onto a sheet of non stick foil to cool a bit and then scored it with a pizza cutter. When cool enough to handle break apart. hth

I got the yellowing when I heated the sugar and corn syup. I thought I was just overheating it. I'm waiting for my Isomalt order and am excited to try it.
