2 cups sugar
2 egg whites
1/2 cup white corn syrup
1/2 cup water
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup chopped nuts

Mix sugar, syrup and water. When mixture reaches semi firm ball (400 degrees) pour 1/4 of it slowly over beaten egg whites and beat. Cook rest of mixture until almost brittle. Pour slowly over egg whites and beat constantly. Continue to beat until it loses its glossiness and becomes dull. Add 1 tsp vanilla and 1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional). Drop from a teaspoon on parchment paper until cool. Store in air tight container. If desired, use 4 drops peppermint instead of vanilla.
