Kids love to watch these crystals form and then eat them!
Make and share this Kool-Aid Rock Candy recipe from Food.com.
- Fill a clean, empty mayonnaise jar with 1/4 cup boiling hot water. Slowly add 2 cups sugar and 1 package of Kool-Aid. Stir well.
- Attach a nail to one end of a string and pencil to the other end of the string.
- Place the pencil on the mouth of the jar so the nail hangs down into the thick sugar without touching the bottom of the jar.
- Place the jar in a warm place and let it stand for a few days. The water evaporates and colorful rocky sugar crystals form on the string.
