I love candy. I love to eat candy. I love to give candy. I love to take candy...except from babies, cause that's not cool. It is safe to say, that I would kill, for candy. Muahahaha.
No, but really, as good as candy is, it also makes your insides rot. Sort of a catch 22: eat it, love it, die. Zinc trisodium aspartate, bisulfate oxide, malto-dextrin alkalide, dehydrated calceinate, artificial barley malt, and the list goes on. This can't be good for you. But will it stop us? Never. Will it stop our children? Nope. Will it make for a fun Halloween project? Damn skippy!
With some paper, blacklight paint, and LEDs, you can make a super sweet Halloween treat AND a profound statement about healthy living. Pffft!
The beauty of this project is that it's prety versatile. So let's get started.

Step 1: Materials You Will Need

Candy - have someone else watch over this...I depleted my supply twice before finishing
Small Biohazard Bags - available @ med supply stores. If you have a friend who works in a hospital, have them grab a few.
Few sheets of paper - optional
Few sheets of paper towels
Multicolored LED's (blue and green work best)
UV paint (glow in the dark paint) got mine @ http://www.maxmax.com/- optional
Wire cutters
3 - 3.5V batteries
Duct tape
Blacklight - optional
My 5 kids are all in there 20's now and they all LOVE candy still. I always tell them, 'Do you know what's in candy?!!&quot; Do you know what effect those toxic additives have on your bodies?!@ lol.. Just so you know I'm copying and pasting your description above and sending it to all their phones lol.. Great instructable btw! <br>
Thanks! Yeah I got UV LEDs as well. I was going to use them at first but thought it might not be a good idea to have little kids playing with UV ligth. Probably not a problem, but they tend to have more of a direct beam than a blacklight tube. Just wanted to make it as safe as possible. Also UV LEDs are harder to find.
Good call. Yes, it is dangerous to look directly at UV LED's. I built UV LED pinspots for my yard-haunt and did a lot of research into the subject beforehand. Just search UV LED safety.
you can buy cheap uv leds. just check ebay.
&nbsp;I'd love to know where you got those bags, none of the ones i've seen anywhere have the same look, and I really like the ones you have, for whatever reason, likely because they're mostly clear with the red icon as&nbsp;opposed&nbsp;to the usual full-red bag.&nbsp;
&nbsp;Never mind I think I found an alternative. &nbsp;Thanks anyway!
LOL...nice....I can't seem to finish my halloween night without have to go and buy more candy for the kids because I consume it all myself...
nice instructable i gotta tell you but... biohazerd mean infected candy, i did this last halloween and no one would take my candy!! they said oh no son don't take this!! so not a good idea to put out...
I wouldn't have a problem with being stuck with a bunch of candy nobody would eat.
rofl soo true you posted this the day after my bday
That is a really cool idea, I tried something similar last Halloween with LEDs and one thing I noticed is that by the time I was done connecting all the LEDs, and the evening was coming to a close, the batteries were starting to die. Yes, I used cheap batteries, but they were to give out. So this year what I intend to do is to take a small piece of mylar and place it between the battery and one LED lead, leaving a tail or thread or mylar running out of the tissue paper, or paper towel in this case, although tissue paper gives a nice crinkly, irregular effect. . If I was doing a bag that sealed, I guess you could still use thread, just leave them hanging out of one corner of the bag. Pull them out and give it a shake. Just a thought.
if you make the haz-mat bio hazerdous candy again this year, use AA batteries with a little resistor for longer battery.
i did this on hallowween and every one was amased sry i didnt reply eirlyer becuse my computer crashed

Great idea, way cool. If you or anyone has any other good Special Event, Movie or Halloween stuff. I'm with a cool group that is creating a Blog for anything relating to Halloween, Special Events, Entertainment Shows, Concerts, Parties, Special Effects for all or any of these. We have a lot of cool people who may try your stuff for their projects. Please send us your cool projects relating to these to entertainment-at-california.com; Really liked how this was executed too!!!
so this isnt poison right? i hope not. but i like this instructable. 10 outta 10
I bought UV LED's (blacklights are UV) to make smaller blacklights, and you could probably use those instead of the blue.
That is a cute idea for handing out candy bags to trick or treaters!
