Willy Wonka Series; Stickjaw
 
Ingredients
  • 1¼ cups white sugar
  • ⅓ cup water
  • ¼ cup glucose
  • 2 drops of Wilton's white white icing colour (not essential, but it makes it whiter)
  • ½ cup shredded coconut
Instructions
  1. Stir in all ingredients on the stove, minus the coconut, until sugar is dissolved.
  2. Let it come to a boil, don't stir, just wet down the sides of the pan from time to time to keep sugar splatter from burning.
  3. When it gets to 310F/ 155C, pull it off the stove straight away, stir in the coconut and pour it into silicone molds.
  4. If you want them to be chewy, put it off the stove at 260-270F/130C.
  5. When they's hardened up in their molds, dust them with icing sugar to keep from sticking together. We used Fred Frozen Smiles Ice Cube Tray that I purchased on Amazon a while ago.
