Edible Sparkling Gems


  • 300g granulated sugar
  • 200ml water
  • 5g agar powder
  • A dash of food coloring (red, blue, and yellow)


  • In a pot, mix together granulated sugar, water, and agar powder and heat; continue heating for 5 minutes after it has boiled.
  • Pour the mixture into a loaf pan lined with cooking paper. In patches of color, dribble in the food coloring (red, blue, and yellow) that’s been dissolved to a dark concentration in water.
  • After letting it set in the refrigerator for 1 hour, remove the solid mixture from the pan and transfer to a pan lined with cooking paper. Using your hands, tear the mixture into roughly formed pieces.
  • Spread the pieces on the tray, leaving space between the individual pieces. Let them dry for 3-4 days in a well-ventilated area.
  • Remove the pieces from the tray and enjoy the sparkles!
