1 box SURE-JELL Fruit Pectin
3/4 cup water
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1-1/4 cups sugar, divided
1 cup light corn syrup
2 tsp. orange extract
5 drops each red and yellow food coloring
Spray 9x5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray. Mix pectin, water and baking soda in medium saucepan. (Mixture will be foamy.) Combine 1 cup sugar and corn syrup in large saucepan.
Cook both mixtures on high heat 4 min. or until foam has thinned from pectin mixture and sugar mixture comes to full rolling boil, stirring mixtures in both saucepans frequently. Gradually add pectin mixture to boiling sugar mixture, stirring constantly. Boil 1 min., stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in extract and food coloring. Pour immediately into prepared pan. Let stand at room temperature 3 hours or until candy is cool and firm.
Sprinkle remaining sugar onto large sheet of waxed paper. Invert candy onto waxed paper. Cut candy into 3/4-inch squares, stopping occasionally to dip knife in warm water. Roll candy in sugar until evenly coated. Place in single layer on wire racks. Let stand, uncovered, at room temperature overnight.
Add 1/4 cup chopped PLANTERS Walnuts to cooked pectin/sugar mixture along with the extract and food coloring.
Coat candy pieces in 1/4 cup powdered sugar instead of the remaining 1/4 cup granulated sugar.
Candy can stand overnight before cutting into squares and rolling in sugar and continuing as directed.
