How To Make Your Own Colored Sugar

How To Make Your Own Colored Sugar


This is so easy you are never going to buy store-bought colored sugar again!


What you will need:

Plastic bags
food color
sugar – (granulated for smaller crystal or raw sugar for larger crystals)

Put a couple of tablespoons of sugar into a small plastic bag. Add a drop or two of food color into the bag. Seal the bag and shake it up. If the sugar starts to clump, just use your fingers to massage the clumps away. Keep working at it until the color is nice and uniform.


Try mixing up the food color to create amazing and vibrant color variations.

Here is what granulated sugar looks like:



This is what the raw sugar looks like:


This would be super fun with the neon food color that is available as well. The sugar can be stored in the plastic bags or in an airtight container. Now you don’t have to limit your decorating to the colors you find in the store. I am certainly excited to have some awesome cookie decorating parties this holiday season.
