I'm coming off of a really rough flu this week and have run into an even more persistent cough... I'm not sure which is worse! I'm out of cough drops and too tired to hike to to the drugstore, so I decided to make my own.
I found this great recipe from Thank Your Body. All you have to do is heat up the ingredients to candy temperature (whisking constantly), then cool on oiled parchment paper and breakup/coat with powdered sugar (I also added a hint of salt!).
