I never buy colored sugar anymore once I discovered that I could make it!
Simply add food coloring (a drop at a time to reach the color intensity you want) into a plastic bag with some sugar, zip it closed and knead it until it mixes thoroughly.
I then pour it out onto a cookie sheet and put it in a oven that I have used and turned off (or you can heat it to 200 degrees). As soon as it's dried completely, (usually within only a few minutes!) simply pour it out into a container and use it!
Great idea! I especially like the fact that you can customize your own colors.
You can also buy the powdered colors for candy making and make your own custom colors without baking.
Actually this recipe isn't to bake the sugar, just to completely DRY it but thanks!
where do you purchase powdered colors for candy making?
