These rock candy gems are very popular when trying to make Cherry Bounce...and they also look fantastic resting in a crystal candy dish!
Rock candy (also called rock sugar) is a type of confectionery mineral composed of relatively large sugar crystals. The candy is formed by allowing a supersaturated solution of sugar and water to crystallize onto a surface suitable for crystal nucleation, such as a string or stick. Heating the water before adding the sugar allows more sugar to dissolve and thus produces larger crystals. Crystals form after 6–7 days. Food coloring may be added to the mixture to produce colored candy.
