           Sew Wax Paper Treat Bags! 
I loved making these super easy and cheap treat bags for my rock candy. Also we are trying some new flavors this year. :) Watermelon, and eggnog! 
For these super easy treat bags you just simply cut out the wax paper into what ever shape you want, and sew the sides up. (you can even cut out shapes of stockings, stars ect... would be cute also! ) Then make and print your labels onto regular printer paper. Cut out and fold the top of the wax paper over and lay the label on top and sew shut! That easy! Handmade means so much more and you could even make larger sizes to just store your candies in. :) hope this will help you out and enjoy!!! Merry Christmas. <3 
Rock Candy Recipe
 TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 25 min. + cooling
YIELD:32 servings


  • 1 cup water
  • 3-3/4 cups sugar
  • 1-1/4 cups Light Corn Syrup Corn Syrup
  • 1 teaspoon red liquid food coloring
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon oil
  • 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar

Directions Line a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. pan with foil; butter the foil and set aside. 

In a large heavy saucepan, combine water, sugar, corn syrup and food coloring. 

Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. 

Cover and cook for 3 minutes to dissolve sugar crystals.

  • Uncover; cook on medium-high heat, without stirring, until a candy thermometer reads 300°
  •  (hard-crack stage), about 25 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in cinnamon oil 
  • (keep face away from mixture as oil is very strong).
  •  Immediately pour onto prepared pan. Cool completely, about 45 minutes.
  • Break the candy into pieces using the edge of a metal mallet. 
  • Sprinkle both sides of candy with confectioners' sugar. 
  • Store in airtight container. Yield: about 2 pounds.
Editor's Note: We recommend that you test your candy thermometer before each use by bringing water to a boil; the thermometer should read 212°. Adjust your recipe temperature up or down based on your test.
