What's the best way to ensure my MCT oil hard candies have a vibrant color?

To achieve brightly colored candies, it's recommended to use gel food coloring. A tiny bit goes a long way, allowing you to achieve the desired vibrancy without affecting the texture or taste of your hard candies.

How can I prevent my hard candies from sticking together after they're made?

After your hard candies have completely cooled, rolling them in icing (confectioner’s) sugar is a great way to prevent sticking. This coating creates a barrier that keeps the candies from clumping together, especially in warmer climates or during storage.

Can I use any type of extract for flavoring my MCT oil hard candies?

For the most robust flavor in your candies, it's suggested to use candy flavoring rather than regular extracts, as the latter might not be potent enough to impart a strong flavor. Candy flavorings are concentrated and designed specifically for hard candies, providing a more intense taste.

What are the key steps I should pay attention to when cooking the candy mixture?

Important steps include heating your mixture of oil, sugar, and corn syrup on low-medium heat until it begins to boil, then removing your spatula and monitoring the temperature closely with a candy thermometer. Avoid stirring after it starts boiling and wait until the mixture reaches 300 degrees Fahrenheit before removing it from heat. This precise temperature control is crucial for achieving the perfect texture for your hard candies.

I’ve read that heating flower past 292°F destroys medicinal properties. Wouldn’t creating this recipe impact the medicinal properties inside the oil?
LEVO Oil Infusion, Inc. replied:
Not from our understanding. We haven’t had any issues baking brownies or any other edibles where the temperature which you bake them or cook them at exceeds 300 degrees!

I would presume lecithin would be used in this recipe, but it makes no mention of it… Is that because it may affect the color of the candy? Or because you don’t recommend using lecithin with this recipe? Or just didn’t add that part, because you presume we are already using lecithin? I have read several places lecithin helps for making candy, especially….
LEVO Oil Infusion, Inc. replied:
There isn’t water in this recipe that the MCT oil needs to mesh with so lecithin is not included. However, as we mention at the top of the recipe, hard candy is about 70% experimentation, so if you find that it gives you better results, by all means go for it!

Can you use regular coconut oil?
LEVO Oil Infusion, Inc. replied:
This particular recipe has not been tested with coconut oil as a substitute, but it should work just fine! Let us know how your results turn out!

Little confused by the ratio in this recipe of flower to oil. It says to add 1/2 cup oil in with the 7g flower, but 7 g of flower pretty much fills the herb pod and 1/2 cup of oil doesn’t even come vlose to covering all that, seems to take a full 2 cups of oil to cover 7g of flower. Am I missing something?
LEVO Oil Infusion, Inc. replied:
Great question, sorry for the confusion! You can use as much oil as you desire when infusing the MCT oil, and we do recommend having your herb fully submerged! The actual recipe for hard candy only uses 1/4 cup of infused MCT oil, so if you decide to infuse more just store the remaining infusion in an airtight container in the fridge to extend shelf life! As a rule of thumb, less oil and more herb will result in a more potent infusion. Please let us know if you have any other questions!
