Homemade Jawbreaker

You may find this hard to swallow, but this jawbreaker is a breeze to make!

Ingredients

  • Assorted Skittles

Steps

  1. Microwave 5 Skittles (all the same color) for 30 seconds. Pour onto a lightly greased plastic cutting board. Use the back of a spoon to flatten melted Skittles into a small circle. If too hot, allow to cool for a few more seconds.
  2. Place one non-microwaved Skittle in the center, and wrap warm Skittles around it. Use the palms of your hands to smooth out the ball.
  3. Continue this process until you have a large jawbreaker ball. Each time you microwave Skittles, increase the amount by 10 to 20 to wrap around the ball. Play around with color patterns.
  4. On the last layer, combine a rainbow of Skittles to give the jawbreaker its signature speckled pattern.
  5. Once jawbreaker is at ideal size, wrap in plastic wrap and freeze for 2 hours. (Hanging the jawbreaker inside the freezer helps the ball to keep its shape.)
  6. If jawbreaker seems too soft during the building process, pop into freezer for a few minutes in between color coatings.
  7. Crack with a hammer and enjoy the rainbow geode center!
