Making Candy for an English Project

For English my class is doing an Independent Study and I chose to do mine on candy making. To start of I want to do something simple such as rock candy. Because my kitchen is very humid and easily gets ants I don't want to leave an open jar of sugar syrup on the counter. Is there a way to make rock candy in the fridge? Does anybody have a recipe for an easy candy such as lollipops, brittle, taffy or chocolate?
