Recipe for Sugar Skulls

Recipe for Sugar Skulls * Calavera de Azucar

2½ cups sugar
Egg white from 1 extra-large egg or 2 small eggs
1 teaspoon light corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
Cornstarch, about a half-cup, for powdering surface
Colored sprinkles
Food coloring
Fine paintbrush
Colored icing

Sift sugar into a large mixing bowl. In another bowl, mix the egg whites, corn syrup, and vanilla.

Slowly pour the liquid into the powdered sugar. Mix with your hands until a sandy dough forms. Form dough into a ball. At this point, you can continue, or you can refrigerate dough for later use.

Lightly dust surface with cornstarch, as well as your hands. Pinch off a heaping tablespoon of dough, and shape it into a skull. If you’re using them, lightly press colored sprinkles into the soft candy. Let the candy dry overnight.

When candy is dry, use the paint brush with food coloring to decorate the skulls. Or you can use frosting (one that will dry hard) with a fine tip to decorate them. Hand them out as is, or wrap in a small cellophane bag tied closed with a small ribbon.

Tips:

The skulls may not dry completely on a humid or rainy day.

The dough should be the consistency of damp sand, just moist enough to hold together. If the dough is too dry and crumbly, add 1 teaspoon of water at a time to moisten.

If dough is too moist, add sugar 1 tablespoon at a time until dough is the right consistency.

If the candy has trouble drying completely, place in a 125 degree warm oven until dry.
