Total Calories: 30


1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons cold water


Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and lightly coat it with a nonstick vegetable spray.

Combine the water and sugar in a medium heavy saucepan bring to a boil over medium heat. Continue to cook for 6 to 7 minutes or until mixture turns golden in color, occasionally swirling the pan. Remove the saucepan from the heat and allow it to sit for 2 to 3 minutes.

Slowly pour the caramel mixture in a free-form pattern onto the baking sheet and allow it to cool. When cool, break the caramelized mixture into irregular triangular shapes. The shards can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
