Homemade rock candy is commonly formed by allowing a solution of sugar and water to crystallize onto a string or some other surface. Superheating the solution by boiling the water before adding the sugar can help produce larger crystals. Crystals form after several days. Food coloring is often added to the mixture to produce colorized candy.
