Old Fashioned Rock Candy

Hard Rock Candy

This has been a favorite during the holiday season for many years. It's beautiful made in many colors and flavors.

Make sure that you use flavoring oil, NOT extract.



  1. Have a greased 9-inch square dish ready.
  2. Bring sugar, syrup and water to 300 degrees F on a candy thermometer.
  3. Add flavoring and desired food color.
  4. Pour into prepared dish, let cool, then break into pieces. At this point you can toss them in confectioner's sugar, if desired.
