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.
