Rainbow Rock Candy
By Holly Wade
Even candy could use a rainbow makeover sometimes!
So, no matter what the occasion, this simple rainbow rock candy is the perfect way to add a pop of color! This easy update means no recipe required…just a little food paint that gives these plain sticks of rock candy shine as well as color.
Thanks to color dust or pearl dust mixed with a little vodka, you can create “paint” that perfectly adheres to the rock candy and stains the color for good, drying quickly so there’s very little mess. Don’t worry; painting with vodka is completely safe for kids because the small amount evaporates so quickly. This is the standard way to mix colors for cake decorating.
