Here's the recipe for a small batch.
Five lb sugar
2 cups water
1 tablespoon vinegar
Combine and stir to dissolve sugar.
Start heating to temperature without stirring
Heat to 234 degrees, about 12 minutes on my stove
Remove from heat and let cool to under 200 degrees, about 12 minutes
Stir or whisk till it starts to get cloudy and quickly pour into molds
You have to move fast after stirring cause it will set quickly
If you want to add anything else to the candy, do it just before you stir it.
When adding protein powder, I place in bottom of mold before pouring.
