Sweet sea treasures

That's not a colorful collection of frosty sea glass, gathered by the edge of the sea on hot summer day... it's actually edible sea glass candy that I made... in shades of turquoise, blue and green. Essentially it's sugar and water that's been boiled, colored, then flavored with mint. The dull opaque effect is from a coating of powdered sugar, but you could also leave the "glass" shiny. Here’s the recipe—you’ll need a candy thermometer. It was a huge hit with both kids and grownups at the 4th of July party I went to this week. Click here to see a batch I made in July of 2013.
