Great question! They very first thing I would do is purchase a silicone mold. You can find these here: https://boldmaker.com/pages/candymolds
Using silicone molds can help save time and money. They are easy to clean and can be frozen and baked. As for recipes, a good hard candy recipe can be along the lines of something like this:
-WaterBasically you just melt it down, bake it, and bam!

Best thing you could do is look for a tutorial on youtube, make sure you have the equipment you need (a candy thermometer is an absolute must), and just follow the directions. You may need to try a couple of times as it is really easy to undercook or over cook your candy, leaving it either too soft or too hard, but once you get comfortable with the process, you should see good results.
