Learn how to make agate slices out of candy. This unique rock candy geode slice is great on its own or as a decoration on top of geode cakes.


They make for a different take on your classic rock candy since these are actually edible geodes. You could even trick your friends into thinking you’re eating rocks!

Separate the candies into bags with the same color candies in each bag. Using a heavy object, crush the candies in a plastic bag. Set them aside.

Cut a hole in a small piece of aluminum foil. Lift the edges of the hole and fold it on itself to make a wall of foil around the hole.


Repeat the process on the outside. This outer-wall will shape the edge of your agate slice so you can make it an oval or any shape you’d like.


To make it easy to create the molds, I’ve put together this agate candy mold template you can use. This way you can place the tin foil on the shapes to help shape them.

Repeat the process for as many slices you'd like to make. Then spray the agate molds with cooking spray.

Choose the color you’d to be in the center of the slice and using a spoon or popsicle stick, spoon some of the crushed candy around the center hole of the mold.


Push it towards the center in an even ring.

Then add another color around it.

Continue with as many colors as you’d like until you have filled the mold. I personally like mixing the clear and opaque candies as different layers.


Tip: Make sure you add enough candy, otherwise it will be too thin and break when trying to remove it from the mold. So when in doubt, use more.

Place them on a baking tray and bake them at 300 F (149 C) for around 4 minutes or until the candies have melted.

Let them cool completely. Then remove them from the molds.

Combine a little bit of the gold edible glitter with a couple drops of water.


Using a paintbrush, paint the edges of the candy agate slices with the edible glitter mixture.

Let them dry and then you have your finished candy agate slices!
