Cook, without stirring, until mixture reaches 120°C (softball) on a candy thermometer. To test that the mixture is at the softball stage Using a clean spoon scope a small amount of the syrup and drop into chilled water, it should form a soft, flexible ball.  This ball will flatten out after a few moments in your hand and means the mixture is ready. Remove from heat.
