It’s fast approaching time to make gifts for the holiday and obviously, my go-to gift is homemade treats from my kitchen. Normally I go all out and make cookies, bread or rolls. This year I wanted something a bit more simple, but still festive red and bursting with flavor. I’m making old-fashion Cinnamon Rock Candy (also known as Cinnamon Hard Candy) this year to add some sweetness to my holiday gifts.
Cinnamon Rock Candy
I’ve been making these candies since I was a teen. I have both a sweet tooth and a fondness for cinnamon, so I love this candy. The way it looks in a glass jar, bright red and dusted with snow-white powdered sugar, will make you love it too!

These pretty little candies look so festive in decorative mason jars or sitting on a buffet table for the holidays. If you manage not to eat them all, they make the perfect gifts for teachers, coworkers, the next-door neighbor, or even the dog walker. Who wouldn’t love this sweet gift for the holidays?
Can you make other flavors of rock candy?
Why yes, you can! There are endless possibilities. I recommend using LorAnn’s Flavoring Oils. There are so many flavors to choose from. Make sure to change the food coloring to match the flavor.
With only six ingredients these candies are very simple to make.
