Intro: Glowing Jelly
Here is a way to make your jelly glow. This will bring an extra something to your Halloween party by giving off wobbling light .
Step 1: Before You Start
This project involves putting small non edible parts in food. Make sure you remove all these parts before you give this to a child.
As we are going to be leaving the LED with the battery in the jelly. The battery will run out after a while so make this in the morning of the day you want to serve it so your battery does not die before you serve it.
Step 2: Collect the Materials:
You will need:
A pack of jelly
LEDs (any colour although I used the colours of my jelly's)
Coin cell battery's (3v)
tape (I used electrical in this instructable but sellotape works too)
long pens or pencils
Step 3: Make Jelly Mixture
Make up the jelly mixture as it says on the pack and if you want add some more gelatin at this point or don't add as much water as it says in the instructions to speed up the setting of the jelly because you will only have a limited time before the batterys die. pour the jelly into the molds and leave to cool to room temprature
Step 4: Prepare the LEDs
While the Jelly is cooling to room temperature tape one end of a 10 cm piece of fishing string to one of the pencils or pens and the other to one of the battery's. Do this for all your LED's and battery's. Once the jelly is down to room temperature push the LED onto the battery so it lights up and so it is pointing downwards. Place the LED into the jelly so it is in about the center of the jelly. Put your jelly in the fridge and wait.
Step 5: Serve
Take the jelly(s) out of the fridge after 9 hours cut or remove the stings from the jelly's and turn them over onto a plate.
Step 6: Enjoy
Enjoy your tasty jelly's and make sure to take out the battery's + LED's before eating.
