How To Make Your Own Lego-Shaped Gummy Candy

As little kids, we loved playing with Lego bricks almost as much as we loved putting them into our mouths. There was just something about the vibrant colors that caused our young, impressionable minds to mistake the building blocks for candy. Needless to say, we were always disappointed when we bit into the rock-hard pieces of plastic. Well, that's all about to change, thanks to this genius how-to video for making edible Legos out of Jell-O. YouTuber Grant Thompson — a.k.a. 'The King Of Random" — created a highly customizable gummy base using corn syrup, gelatin, and Jell-O packs. Simply inject the concoction into Lego ice molds (like these), and voilà — you've got yourself a chewy, translucent version of the construction toy. The best part? These treats retain the stackability of the real thing, which opens up a world of opportunities for mini architectural wonders you can also snack on. People are going gaga over the experiment, with the video clip racking up more than 1 million views in under two days. Check it out for yourself below — and try not to freak out over the Lego man-shaped jellies.
