Isomalt would give you clear cubes.

I've never used isomalt.  Is it difficult to work with?

I wouldn't say difficult - just need to be careful as it's super hot liquid.  There's a class on Craftsy (if you know what that is) that gives an intro to isomalt (free).  I've only used the nibs, so all I had to do was heat them up and pour, but there are other forms of it, too, that are cheaper.  Just need a bit more work before you can pour.  But for clear cubes you just need a silicone ice cube tray and some Isomalt.
