Xylitol Hard Candy

That is very interesting, I never thought of boiling xylitol. Do you have access to large amounts of it? I know that stuffs expensive, at least it was the last time I bought it. If you have some to spare and okay around with, try boiling a cup of it with maybe 2oz water and see what the result is. All I do know is that, when I've seen sugarless hard candies (I forget what brand they were) they were made with isomalt, so that too, perhaps, can be another avenue for you.

I haven't tried making candy with it, but I can't imagine it would be much different than with regular sugar. I did try a syrup with it, 3:1, and it precipitated out a large crystal in the jelly jar I put it into.
