Edible Crayons

The anonymous proprietor of the clothing and cuisine blog Luxirare uses dried fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and other edibles to make crayons you can eat.

All the crayons (she calls them health bars) are made with Fruity Pebbles (organized by color) and chocolate covered sunflower seeds. Luxirare then adds certain ingredients for particular colors: for red she adds goji berries plus freeze-dried strawberries and raspberries; for blue she uses freeze-dried peas and blueberries; green is a mixture of peas, green beans, dried kiwi fruit and dried pumpkin seeds.

She grinds up the ingredients into a powder and puts them in a pan of melted marsmallow with some water. Then she presses the mixture in a crayon-shaped mold, and allows the bars to air dry. The result: jewel-toned crayons that are also delicious.

Her photos are luscious too.

Now, I'm no health nut, nor do I think kids should be relegated to eating only compressed tofu and the like, but I must raise my eyebrow at someone who calls crayons made primarily from fruity pebbles and marshmallows "healthy", no matter what other ingredients are in them. I'm sure it's better than feeding your kid Twix, but I have a lot more suspicion about the product when it makes claims like that...
