That's too much corn syrup, you don't need that much. It probably didn't get hot enough in the microwave either. You need to get a sugar thermometer to make sure it's getting to 300 degrees. Just use 1 cup of sugar, 1/4 cup corn syrup and a little water, then heat it to about 300, take it off the stove and pour it into the molds. Make sure that the molds are heatproof! Don't stir the sugar while it's cooking or it could crystallize.

It needs to totally cool off before you try to take them out of the mold. It will take a while if they're regular ice cube sized, since those are pretty thick, but putting them in the fridge will speed it up. Are you just using ice cube trays for the mold? Make sure to spray a little cooking spray inside to grease the mold so that they come out easier.
