 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2 1/2  cups          Sugar
      1/2  cup           Dark karo syrup
      1/2  cup           Water
      1/4  teaspoon      Salt
    2                    Egg whites
    1      teaspoon      Vanilla
    2      tablespoons   Dark Rum
    2      teaspoons     Instant coffee powder
      1/2  teaspoon      Ground cinnamon
 
 In a 2-quart saucepan, stir together the sugar, corn syrup, water and salt.
Stirring constantly, bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat. Without
stirring, cook until temp of candy thermometer reach es 248~ (soft ball stage).
Just before temperature reaches 248~, in a large bowl with mixer at high speed,
beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. With mixer at high speed, slowly pour
about 1/2 of the hot mixture over the egg whites. Cook remaining syrup to 272~ or
until a small amount of mixture when dropped into very cold water separates into
threads which are hard, but not brittle. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and
dark rum. Beating constantly, slowly pour hot syrup over egg white mixture. After
last addition of syrup, beat in coffee powder and ground cinnamon. Continue
beating until mixture begins to lose its gloss and a small amount of mixture
holds a soft peak when dropped from a spoon. If mixture becomes too stiff for
mixer, beat with a heavy wooden spoon. Drop by teaspoonsfull onto wax paper.
Store in a tightly covered contain er at room temperature. Makes 1 1/2 pounds.
 
   Note: If you wish, 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans may be stirred into mixture
 with coffee powder and cinnamon.
