- 2 cans coconut milk, unsweetened
- 2/3 cup water
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- red, green and blue gel food coloring
Prepare the food coloring
Place a pea-sized amount of each red, green, and blue food coloring in the bottom of a small, heat-safe mixing bowl. Set aside.
Prepare the agar agar mixture
Pour all the coconut milk and water in a medium saucepan (you want it to equal 4 cups, total). Add 4 tsp of agar agar and whisk until it is all incorporated into the coconut milk.
Place over medium-high heat and bring to a gentle boil, reducing heat once it boils to bring it to a simmer.
Add the 1/2 cup sugar and stir until all the sugar is dissolved. At this point, give the mixture a little taste and see if it is sweet enough for you. If not, add sugar by the tbsp until it is sweet enough, stir until dissolved, then remove from heat.
Remove 1/4 + 1/8 cup of the agar agar mixture and place into the bowl with the food coloring. Whisk until the mixture is black and place 1 tbsp each into the bottom of the six spherical molds (put them all on a cookie sheet for easy moving). Put all molds into the refridgerator to cool.
After about 15-30 minutes, check and see if the black mixture has set. If it has, begin adding the rest of the white agar agar/coconut mixture on top of the black mixture evenly across the rest of the six molds, leaving a small amount of space at the top. (Note that if the mixture in the pan has started to solidify, you can reheat to make liquid again).
Once all the molds have been filled, place the lids carefully on each mold and press down gently. Put back in the fridge.
Allow to chill several hours until eyeballs are fully set. Repeat all the steps to make the last two eyeballs (reheat agar agar if necessary). Remove and serve as desired.
