Honey Candy

Look how pretty this is—Honey Candy–for your…Honey.

It tastes so good and I’ve even been told that it makes a lovely, soothing throat drop. I’m a bit more interested in it as a candy, because, well–it’s just the kinda girl I am.

But to each his own.

Difficulty: Easy

Servings: About 50 small pieces


2 c. sugar
1/2 c. water
1/2 c. honey
1/4 c. butter


Put all the ingredients in heavy pan and cook over medium heat until it reaches the hard crack stage. Pour into a buttered cookie sheet. Fold edges of candy into middle until cool enough to pull. Pull and cut it into one inch pieces or roll in balls. Put on a greased cookie sheet. You can leave it there–or you can twist each piece in wax paper or cellophane.

I’d suggest that you wrap it if you want to carry a few pieces in your purse…

But you decide.

    Oooo, this sounds good. I have to try it! I’m thinking of using some vanilla sugar 🙂

    I made these for my husband this weekend. He loves them. I had to use a little powdered sugar to keep them from sticking together. Thanks for the idea!

    Just made your candy….FANTASTIC!!I won’t be buying any store bought throat drops from now on. Thanks for sharing the recipe….OH BTW Buster(my bassett)says thanks. I dropped one on the floor and he got it,he begged for more.Maybe next time will put lemon flavoring in to make honey-lemon.

    Oh, I just have to make some of those for Christmas presents!

    I wanted to add that these would be good for soothing a sore throat. And the addition of essential oil of peppermint might be nice, too, to make honey/mint drops.

    For sore throats you could coat the drops in powdered slippery elm bark. Slippery Elm bark powder is approved by the FDA as a demulcent (an soothing and softening affect). I also like to make an extract out of Coltsfoot leaves to add into the cough drops I make. Coltsfoot also has a soothing affect on the throat.

    Mark, what about horehound? Would we need to make a tea and replace the water with it to add horehound?

      I’d be willing to bet that would work, dede. I used to make horehound drops and that’s what I did…made a strong horehound tea and used it as the water portion. Uh, oh, now I’m thinking of honey-coffee drops, or honey-black tea drops, or with e.o. of lemon, honey-lemon drops…

    All right, I am not totally new to all of this but could you explain the “pull” part. I am not following that.
    But thanks for the great recipe.

      Hi LaVonna,

      Pull just means to stretch the taffy and fold it over. If you do that several times the candy lightens up and looks a lot like shiny ribbon.
