Dragon Glass

Heat and Sweet are a great combination. This Dragons Breath sugar glass candy has plenty of both! Be very careful with the temperature – if you burn it, you might as well be cooking with pepper spray! (Don’t ask how I know!)


  • 1 Cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 Cup corn syrup
  • 1/3 Cup water
  • 4 Dragon’s Breath peppers
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 tsp. food coloring (red or black)


  • Blend pepper and cinnamon in water and let steep for at least 30 min.
  • Strain water into a saucepan, add sugar, corn syrup, and food coloring.
  • Heat to 300° while stirring constantly*
  • Pour out onto parchment lined baking sheet and spread thinly.
  • Allow to cool about 2 hours. Dust with powdered sugar and break.

* Accurate temperature is very important, use a candy thermometer!
