Ingredients and Supplies
Before cooking, prepare your molds by covering the quartz crystals in aluminum foil, then carefully pulling the foil apart, leaving an impression.
You can also make long strips of candy by folding the foil lengthwise and curling up the ends so the candy doesn’t leak out.
Set your molds into the pan of rice to maintain their shape.
Mix and Heat
Dissolve three capsules of vitamin B2 in 150mL of water (5/8 cup), and measure out 1.25 cups of sugar.
Using your candy thermometer, mix in the sugar and B2/water mix until the solution gets to 200 degrees. Then stop mixing and wait for the temperature to reach 300.
Add Color and Pour
Now it’s time to work fast. Add your food coloring and flavoring and quickly stir, then start pouring your molds with a ladle.
Cool and Enjoy
Wait until the candy has solidified, and carefully pull them from the molds.
Congratulations, you’ve made UV sensitive Kryptonite candy. Enjoy!
