DIY: "Breaking Bad" Inspired Meth Candy

Instead of baking my cube mates cupcakes for Halloween this year I decided to make them meth inspired rock candy from "Breaking Bad", as we are all fans of the show. No, I don't do drugs, Breaking Bad is one of my favorite shows and this is something different for an office treat.

*Warning* You probably shouldn't hand this out to kids on Wednesday unless you want angry parents knocking on your door with fire torches and pitchforks.

Stuff you need:
3 cups of sugar
1 cup of water
1/2 tbsp of vanilla extract (for better taste)
blue food coloring

1. Mix the sugar and water together until the sugar dissolves then boil it.
2. After it has come to a boil, add the vanilla extract and food coloring
3. Put it in a baking pan and let it sit until it crystallize.  To speed up the crystal formation, put it near a heat vent/ with a fan blowing at it.

Wait a few days and you will see the crystals form. Put it in little plastic bags for the "authentic" Breaking Bad look. And maybe one day you can give this to someone telling them it's meth and watch them make a douchery of themselves getting high from sugar candy just for shits and giggles- I would.

  5. Haha...my husband and I are addicted to this show, we've been trying to catch up with everyone in the States and Canada, this is cool :)

  6. I keep meaning to start watching breaking bad, I've heard really good things about it.

    Your candy looks awesome, clever idea!!

    (I agree don't hand it out to trick or treaters!!)

  7. I love it! these days I'm mad about breaking bad! I'll try this ;)

  8. What a great idea for a Halloween treat.

    I was reading an article about the Breaking Bad tours you can take in Albuquerque now that the show is wrapping up. One of the pit stops is at a candy store that sells "meth candy" similar to this (dyed rock candy). The store used to supply the Breaking Bad set with all of their prop meth apparently, so your DIY isn't very far off the mark!

  9. Love it!Such a great ideia, Breaking Bad is such a hit right now!


  10. your sense of humor continues to delight me.

  11. wow! That's a great idea! Definitely going to make. Should put my appointment for my dentist already , haha :D

  12. wowoww! this is REALLY interesting ^_~

  13. I loved rock candy as a kid. It was like having a rough diamond. A small box lasted me for days.

  14. Phahahhaa, brilliant idea! :-D

  15. Hahaha, fun idea! And the harmless kind of bad ;)

  16. This is awesome! The perfect adult party favors!


  17. Hilarious! I did this with my Grade 2 students last year in their science class. Only we called them crystals instead of meth... too bad the idea didn't come before or the science experiment title may have changed and raised a few eyebrows at the dinner table.

  18. Yum! Rock candy is the best! Great DIY
