- Hard candy, crushed, in a variety of colors (not rock candy - this will not melt)
- Cooking spray
- Aluminum foil
- Edible gold luster dust
- Poke a hole in the center of a square of aluminum foil. Bend the foil so that you create short walls around the hole, then create the body of the agate by creating more walls with the foil.
- Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and spray generously with cooking spray.
- Sprinkle the crushed hard candy inside the molds, adding more candy than you feel you need - it will melt and shrink! Adding different colours will create interesting patterns once the candy has melted.
- Bake in the oven at 300F for 5-10 minutes, or until the candy has completely melted. Don't leave the candy in any longer than necessary - it may bubble up and discolor.
- Remove from the oven and allow the agate candies to cool completely on the baking sheet.
- Gently remove them from the aluminum foil, using a sharpe knife to help, if necessary.
- Wet a clean paintbrush with water, then dip into some edible gold luster dust. Paint this onto the edges of the candies to create gold edges.
