Marvel's Infinity Stones

Who's excited to see The Avengers: Infinity War? ✋While I won't be rushing out on opening night to see the film, there are plans to see it mid-week when the theaters aren't as crowded. However, in preparation of the film, Madison and I decided to make our own Infinity Stones.


My husband is a big comic book fan, so has been telling me what I should expect to happen in the movie, but I have high hopes that some things may change. While it will be weird seeing Thor without his hammer and an eye patch, I'm really excited to see how it all pans out. So far I have seen all the Avengers movies, along with everything that Marvel has had to offer, and my favorite character thus far has been Dr. Strange.


So how did we go about making these infinity stones and what was the inspiration behind making them? Surprisingly it all started on a Walmart run. I went into the store looking for molds for Easter and found the cutest mold in the cookie aisle. Here's something you may not realize, we are always baking, crafting or creating something in the kitchen, however, most of it either ends up in our tummies and never on the blog. It takes time to photograph food, and I'd much rather do it for fun with my kids than for work, unless of course it's so easy that I don't need to photograph it, such as this.

What are the colors of the Infinity Stones and what are they?

  • Red - The Mind Stone
  • Yellow - The Power Stone
  • Green - The Space Stone
  • Orange - The Reality Stone
  • Purple - The Soul Stone
  • Blue - The Time Stone

And making these Marvel Infinity Stones was so much easier than you'd think.
Marvel's Infinity Stones

Here is what you'll need!

Ingredients

Jolly Ranchers in Infinity Stones Colors (5 - cherry, blueberry, grape, orange, lemon, green apple)
Ziploc bag
Mallet or rolling pin
Geometric candy mold


Directions

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Step 1. Begin by placing each flavor jolly rancher in a separate ziploc bag. I suggest putting them on one side of the bag since you may very well end up with holes in the bag, and I'll explain why in the next step.

Step 2. With your mallet or rolling pin, crush the candy into small pieces. If you crushed them on one side, you can now shake them to the other side that is still intact.

Step 3. Cut a snip into your ziploc bag and use that snip to pour your crushed candy into your mold.


Step 4. Place your mold into your preheated oven for approximately 10 minutes or until melted.

Step 5. Remove from the oven and let cool. Once cooled you can then remove your infinity stones from the mold.


That's it! You're all done. You can now hide your stones and have the kids pretend to be Thanos on a quest to collect them all, or eat them. Either way, enjoy!

  1. These look so easy to make and seriously got to give a try now as I have a bag of Jolly Ranchers in my pantry! Thanks :)

    1. They are. This was our 2nd shot at them though. The first time we tried them we didn't use the above steps with the ziploc bag, so we ended up with different colors in our mold. They still tasted good though. We also didn't fill them to the top so they were rather small. Guess the 2nd time was the charm.

  3. What a fun thing to do--turning jolly ranchers into different shapes and baking them. And so pretty too.

    1. Thank you. I wanted something that would be simple and make the colors pop and also look more see through. A friend recommended Jolly Ranchers and I'm glad she did. They came out great.

  5. I think we already have tickets for opening night because.. Cassidy.. but I love this. And it gave me some much needed brush up knowledge about the stones. We are all all all about MARVEL here.
    I'm reading about second time is the charm so I'll be following that tip!

    1. We bought early tickets for Black Panther but we're not doing it for this one, we're just going to wait. My husband is big on Marvel and DC, to be honest, I'm a bigger fan of Batman and SuperMan than I am of the Marvel characters, so I guess you could say that I'm more of a DC fan.
      And if you follow my tip, you won't need a second time. 😉

  6. Thanks for the link to Amazon because I don't have a Walmart near me and I would love to make these with my niece and nephew. I'm looking forward to seeing the movie when it comes out. And btw I love anything easy and your stuff is always easy.

    1. Walmart online probably sells the mold as well but it was easier finding it on Amazon. I'm looking forward to the movie as well but just not on opening day. And yes, I love easy. Anything easy is for me.

    1. I'm pretty sure that there might be. There's almost always an equivalent to a certain candy/food in different countries.

  8. I am so excited for The Infinity Wars. Though, I would probably just eat the sweets than make bigger sweets out of them lol.

  10. This is a great craft idea for the kids. Especially since they love the Avengers! I’m just wondering if they will eat them all before they get to play with them!

    1. They just might eat them all. I know I had Madison help and she kept eating them, she couldn't wait for them cool and have me take photos.

  11. That is so cool to make sweets into 'stones'. I think my niece and nephews would love to do that but maybe use chocolate.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You can also totally use chocolate. It was just so much easier using jolly ranchers since they already have all the colors. We thought about chocolate, but you'd either have to use white and food coloring since finding all the colors are a little difficult.

  12. That's really clever - a craft you can eat. The kids will love those.

    1. Well technically they still taste like jolly ranchers, but just in a bigger form which I think my daughter loved even more, because now she got to get a bit more.

  16. This is the first one I have seen on the actual Infinity stones. I know there are few posts on Avengers crafts and foods. I know because I have a few too.


    Great post and thanks for sharing

    1. I haven't even checked to see what others were doing. If it wasn't for that geometric mold, I might not have even done an Infinity Stones post, or even anything Avenger related.

    1. Thank you. I don't really think it's the camera, but more of the lens. I currently use the Sony A7R III with the 90mm macro lens.

    1. Yes, I wanted that clear see through look, instead of the firm look that you will get with chocolate or any other thing, and jolly ranchers worked out the best.

    1. Marvel and Jolly Ranchers go hand in hand. Make a weekend project out of it and see what transpires. See how much they eat before you actually make it.

    1. You're very welcome Laura. My daughter ate quite a bit before we were even finished. The very first time I made them they didn't turn out so good, but we had a blast. Your kids would too.

    1. I bet they would, but not before they end up eating a few of the candy before you get it all done. At least that's what happened at my house.

    1. This is great idea but the colors are wrong.
      Space - blue
      Mind - yellow
      Reality - red
      Power - purple
      Time - green
      Soul - orange

    2. Thank you, but based on the original comics (before Disney's Marvel) the colors we mentioned are the original ones. The new Marvel universe now has them in these colors, but we based it on the original.
