Lemon Crunch Candy
- Line a baking sheet with foil; set aside. In a heavy 2-quart saucepan heat candy coating over low heat, stirring constantly, until melted and smooth. Remove from heat. Stir in crushed candies, reserving some to sprinkle on top. Pour mixture onto the prepared baking sheet. Spread to about 3/8-inch thickness. Sprinkle with the reserved crushed candy pieces.
- Chill candy about 30 minutes or until firm. (Or, let candy stand at room temperature several hours or until firm.) Use foil to lift firm candy from the baking sheet; carefully break candy into pieces. Store tightly covered for up to 2 weeks. Makes 1 pound candy.
