My Grandma (Nannie) used to make some sort of colored crystals grow in a pie pan. I know she used charcoal briquettes as the base & poured some sort of concoction on top. I think ammonia was one ingredient cause I remember the smell but could be wrong..it's been a few years, she died in 1971. Stuff would grow in different colors on the charcoal, sort of like cauliflower. Has anyone else done this? Is there a name for such a thing?? I know the memory isn't a result of growing up in the 60's!! Jody
Well, it could be, maybe your granny laced the brownies? She was your favorite granny I bet.
