1. In a small bowl, combine gelatin and cold water.  Stir with a spoon until very thick.  Allow to stand 5 minutes.

2. In a 2-quart saucepan, combine hot water, ½ cup corn syrup, and sugar.  Place over high heat and stir until mixture comes to a boil.  Clip on candy thermometer and cook to 230* or soft-ball state.

3. Remove from heat and stir in remaining corn syrup.  Pour into medium size bowl.

4. Using electric mixer on high speed, beat hot syrup, adding gelatin 1 tablespoon at a time.

5. Continue beating until all gelatin is incorporated, candy is thick, and has cooled to a lukewarm temp, this usually takes about 10 minutes.  Stir in vanilla.

6. Pour the mixture onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet.  Allow to stand at least 3 hours, or overnight. Do not refrigerate.
