I couldn’t sleep tonight so I made these sparkly little Space Invader sugar cubes.  If I can get them to come out of the molds consistently without the legs breaking off, I think they would be fun to have around for a tea party.

These are amazingly easy to make.  All you need is sugar, water, and a mold.

  1. Fill the mold you want to use with sugar.  That’s all the measuring you need to do.
  2. Dump the sugar into a pot and add just enough hot water to get the sugar to dissolve.
  3. Heat the sugar water until most of the water evaporates.  If you wait too long and it clumps, just add more water and repeat.
  4. Add food coloring if you’re into that.
  5. Pour into molds.
