Rock Candy is such a fun treat to make and eat for holidays, parties, or any fun occasion. Learn how to make Rock Candy at home for something special to share with the family. I chose to make a blue raspberry candy, but you can make any color or flavor you like with this quick-and-easy homemade Rock Candy!
- 1/2 cup water
- 3/4 cup light corn syrup
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 tsp flavoring extract I chose raspberry, but there are lots of flavors to choose from!
- food coloring I used blue, but use any color!
Mix all ingredients together in a medium saucepan.
Stir until boiling. Once the liquid begins to boil, do not stir until finished.
Once boiling, place a candy thermometer in the liquid and monitor closely. when the liquid reaches 300 degrees, take off the heat and set aside.
Allow the mixture to cool until the bubbles quit breaking at the surface of the liquid.
Pour liquid onto a foil-lined (and non-stick-sprayed) baking sheet.
Allow to cool until fully hardened. Then break apart to the size desired.
- TIP: I had a reader comment that a great way to keep them from sticking is shaking them in powdered sugar before sealing in an airtight container. GENIUS!
