Homemade Rock Candy

Does anyone know the trick to making rock candy? I tried the recipe with a piece of string and the sugar water, with no results.

You would need a candy thermometer. It will give you the exact boiling temp of the sugar water combo needed for the mixture to harden. There is a "test" you can do with water in a cup and you drop little drops of the mixture into it. Sorry I don't remember the rest. I honestly think the thermometer is what you need. Good Luck

I'm looking for a recipe for rock candy. The one my son and I tried left us with jars of moldy sticks! Thanks in advance!
