Rock Candy


Rock candy is easy to make and it's a fun way to teach kids about science, too! Colored sugar crystals magically grow into delicious hard candy. This rock candy recipe has been in my family for years.

If you're wondering what flavored oils I use in my rock candy, I shall fulfill your curiosity. Purple is anise, blue is clove, green is wintergreen, orange is butter rum, yellow is banana cream, red is cinnamon, and pink (not shown here) is tutti frutti.
