Do you have a bunch of leftover Christmas candy which are making your New Year’s resolutions hard to keep? Tired of having a sugary Santa Claus staring at you from inside his plastic wrapper? Take a note from YouTube user mist8k and set that candy santa on fire with a little help from science.
Whip out your handy dandy hot plate, a beaker and a bottle of potassium chlorate and you’ve got the makings of a fiery candy explosion. That’s one calorie packed treat that won’t be going straight to your hips!
Don’t try this at home unless you’ve got a scientific background and the proper fire extinguishing materials on hand, but if you’re the neighborhood mad scientist by all means have a ball- of molten candy fire.
