1) Thoroughly grease a baking sheet with cooking spray.

2) In a large saucepan over medium heat, add water, sugar and corn syrup. Stir to combine and heat to 380 degrees Fahrenheit. (It really helps to have a candy thermometer.)

3) Quickly and gently pour sugar mixture onto grease baking sheet. Drop food coloring all over and and swirl the colors around with a wooden chopstick. Allow the candy to cool until hard, about 30 minutes.

4) Dust a clean surface with powdered sugar, remove rock candy from baking sheet and break it over the powdered sugar. You can use your hands, a hammer--anything that will break it up!

5) Serve and enjoy! You can also jar the candy and give it as a gift!
