Smashing Treats { Sea Glass Candy Treats }

by Claire Minnaar

Ever heard of Sea Glass Candy Treats? Well, whether you have or haven’t, this is a must try with the kids plus making these treats gives kiddos a fun opportunity to do some permitted bashing i.e. you ask them to bash!

You can choose any colours you want and even mix and match. These treats can be used for table decoration at a party or a special time of year, such as Xmas. They can be packaged in bottles or boxes to be given as gifts for family, friends and / or your child’s favourite teacher. And, they make for fun decoration on ice cream and cakes.

  • ¾ cup of water
  • ¾ cup of corn syrup
  • ¼ tsp essence of your choice
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • Food colouring of your choice
  • Icing sugar


  • Line a baking tray with waxed paper or grease with butter
  • Heat up a saucepan on the stove and bring to medium heat
  • Add sugar to the pan and stir until it has dissolved
  • Allow the mixture to boil, stirring occasionally, for approximately 30 minutes. To check if the mix is ready, drop a tiny bit into ice water – if it immediately turns brittle, you are ready for the next step.
  • Add essence to the mixture
  • Add the food colouring to the mixture until the desired colour is achieved
  • Pour mixture onto the baking tray and place in the fridge to cool until it's fully hardened
  • Remove the “pane” of hardened candy from the tray and wrap in waxed paper
  • Place on a cutting board or suitable surface for some hammer smashing time! Smash into pieces - you choose how big or small you want the pieces (more bashing = smaller pieces)
  • Dust the candy shards with icing sugar to give a sea glass look to it
  • And voila! The candy treats are ready to be boxed / packages for a family friend, topped onto some ice cream or just eaten right there and then - you choose!
