A Fun Use For Non-Crystallizing Liqueurs

SolidLiquidsProjectSquareLogoI had some problems getting some liqueurs to crystallize in the Solid Liquids project. But I did find a fun use for them. 

Luckily I have a whole heck of a lot of silicone ice cube trays laying around. So I poured the still-hot, thick syrupy mostly-dehydrated liqueur into the trays.

Then let it cool.

These are kind of delicious candies to suck on, but they are a bit sticky. I recommend keeping them in the refrigerator so they don't turn back to glop. 

Then for additional fun, I busted out my Creepy Crawlers Bug-Maker Oven (yes I've had one ever since I was a kid) and poured it in the mold.

And I made a sugar spider.

Not perfect, but still fun.
