Make Your Own Sea-Glass Candy Wedding Favours

Looking for easy, inexpensive and fun wedding DIY wedding favors that will put a big, happy smile on your guests’ faces? Make your own sea glass candy with this tutorial from Intimate Weddings.

You can make any flavor you want. Place them inside a pretty tin, tie with a ribbon – and you have a wonderful thank-you treat for your wedding guests.

These candies aren’t only easy – they’re super tasty too. These would be perfect for a beach wedding – or any wedding near the water.

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup corn syrup
  • 1/4 – 1 tsp. flavoring oil
  • Icing sugar (to coat cooled candy)

  1. Grease a cookie sheet or cake pan with butter. 
  2. Measure ingredients. 
  3. Pour granulated sugar, corn syrup and water in a medium saucepan. Place over medium heat and stir until sugar dissolves. 
  4. Without stirring, boil the mixture until a candy thermometer reads between 300 and 310 degrees (this will take about 30 minutes). Drop a small amount into ice water. If it separates into brittle strands its ready. 
  5. Remove from heat and let boiling subside. 
  6. Measure flavoring oil and pour into candy mixture. Also add food coloring if desired. Blend with a wooden spoon (you’ll notice that it will get really steamy for a few seconds). 
  7. Pour onto greased cookie sheet or cake pan. Let cool (can be put in the fridge).
  8. Cover hardened candy with parchment paper and tap with a mallet to shatter candy into small pieces.
  9. Use a basting brush and coat candy pieces with icing sugar.
  10. Place into favor tins. Tie with ribbon and adhere labels.
