comment Crystallization of sugar solution, and oddly crunchy candy with fudge-like texture after eating
Note: Water boils at 100°C, sugar "melts" (actually chemical breakdown) above 100°C. So by the time your sugar has melted, a significant amount of the water will have boiled away. Water is just there to aid in getting an even melt, and isn't actually required
