The following is a recipe for "broken glass", a hard candy. We often made
this when I was a kid. We would flavor one batch with cinnamon oil (and
color it red), and flavor another with wintergreen (and color it green).

Mix all ingredients and stir over heat until sugar dissolves. Boil to 300F
or hard crack on candy thermometer. Remove from heat and add 1/4 teaspoon
oil flavoring (peppermint, wintergreen, cinnamon, etc.) and desired food
coloring. Pour onto well-buttered cookie sheet. Mark into pieces as soon as
it starts to harden around the edge. Powder candy with powdered sugar and
break into pieces when set.
