Replacing candy thermometer with meat thermometer?

I have a candy recipe I really wanna try tonight but I only have a meat thermometer. Can I use that instead of a candy thermometer? Or is there some other way to tell when the candy is at the "hard crack stage, or 300 degrees on a candy thermometer"?
