This is our Instructable on making techie Edible + Glowing LED Light Gummy Candy at SoHa SMART. We make this for people to nosh on before classes and Meetups. If you put them under a black light they glow! This is because of the ingredient Quinine which is the key ingredient found in the tonic water. We mixed tonic water instead of plain water. Use our recipe as a base and tweak it from there to make any gummy glow!
Our recipe makes approximately 120 candies
We used some standard gum drop molds. Plastic candy molds and shaped ice cube trays woork too (small shapes work best).
1 3-oz. package powdered Jell-O, any flavor. This also depends on what color you want you LED's to be. We used Jolly Rancher Green Apple Flavor.
7 packets gelatin, unflavored
1/2 cup TONIC WATER
3D Printer (we used this to create the LED leads and printed in PLA which is a corn based plastic) (you could easily use 2 plastic food picks or colored toothpicks)
