Introduction: Candy Video Game Life Bars
So much leftover Halloween candy! I had to do something. So I did. I made video game life bars with the leftover Kit-Kat bars.
1 cup powdered sugar
2 teaspoons meringue powder
1 tablespoon water
Green food coloring
Yellow food coloring
Sealable plastic bag
Step 1: Make the Royal Icing
To create the royal icing, mix together the meringue powder, powdered sugar, and water. If you’re using a mixer, start the speed out slow so the powdered sugar doesn’t explode everywhere. You’ll want the icing pretty thick. If it’s too thick, just add a tiny bit more water.
Scoop most of the icing into another bowl, leaving a few tablespoons. Add a few drops of the green food coloring to the majority of the royal icing and mix. Add a couple of drops of yellow food coloring to make it a brighter green, and mix.
Step 2: Prepare the Frosting Bag
Scoop the icing into the plastic bag.
Seal the bag, and snip off one of the corners.
Step 3: Frost the Tops
Frost the tops of your Kit-Kats, the amount of "life" depending on your fancy.
Use a toothpick to help nudge the color into its proper place.
Step 4: Writing the Text
Dip a toothpick into the remaining white royal icing and draw “LIFE” on the side.
Step 5: Allow to Set
Allow to set for a couple of hours to make sure the royal icing has hardened.
