I cooked down corn syrup and can't get it off my pot!

I boiled equal parts corn syrup and water, trying to make a sticky paste (glue to catch pests--story for another day). I think I let it boil too long and accidentally made candy. My stainless steal pot is full of what looks (and tastes) like hard candy. How do I unstick it?????

I would simmer soapy water for around 10 minutes, then leave the water for 2-3 days, depending on the candy thickness.
