How-To: Fluorescent Jell-O

Clever food-safe trick to make glow-in-the-blacklight Jell-O that is, nonetheless, edible. At least in theory. I have seen this trick in a couple places, but Instructables user cluracon has the best instructions and photography of the bunch. [Thanks, Chelsea!]

  1. Try using tonic water (with quinine) and letting it go flat, than make jello with that. Should get a similar effect.
