OK-So this isn't exactly a food recipe but it uses food stuff and it looks pretty cool too! Fun for kids to make.Plus you can point out that oil is lighter than vinegar...a little Science never hurt anyone!

Oooooooooh! So neat! I think I'm going to make a few more with my cousin's little ones. It would be really pretty for Valentine's Day with red food coloring, glitter, and foil confetti hearts.
