Learn how to make edible glass, which is used as props in hundreds of movies! You only need two main ingredients: butter and sugar. Fun and easy!
- Butter (Amazon link: Butter)
- Baking sheet
- Sugar (1 cup). (Amazon link: Sugar)
- Heavy stainless steel or nonstick frying pan
- Large wooden spoon.
1.Butter the baking sheet, and place it in the refrigerator.
2.Put the sugar in the frying pan. With adult supervision, set the pan on a burner at low heat.
3.Stir the sugar slowly as it heats up. The sugar will slowly turn tan, stick together in clumps, and begin melting into pale brown liquid.
4.Continue stirring until the sugar melts into a thick brown liquid.
5.Pour the brown liquid into the cold baking sheet. Let cool.
The melted sugar hardens into a sheet of edible sugar glass. Sugar is made of crystals, just like glass, which is made from sand.
