Not to be confused with Pop Rocks, rock candy, which is large chunks of crystallized sugar, is a wonderfully simple snack in and of itself, and can be used to dissolve in tea or coffee as well as on top of other desserts.
As far as making your own Pops Rock candy goes, it is actually ridiculously easy. All you need is some water, a glass mason jar, sugar, food coloring, cotton string, a pencil, a paper clip, and a little patience.
