I 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.
(That's IM for Irish Mist, y'all.)
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.
