Things You'll Need
- Liquid food coloring
- Edible glitter
- Mixing bowl
- Measuring cup
- Cookie sheet
- Tin foil
- Decorative container
Add Sugar and Coloring to Mixing Bowl
Pour 1/2 cup of sugar into the mixing bowl. Add 7-10 drops of liquid food coloring to the sugar. You can add more once you start mixing if the color isn’t bright enough.
Mix the Coloring and Sugar Together
Press the color drops into the sugar using a fork. Mix until all the clumps are gone and you’ve reached your desired color.
Allow Sugar to Dry
Line a cookie sheet with tin foil and spread the sugar out. Allow the sugar to air dry for about an hour.
Make sure the sugar is completely dry before storing. If you store it without drying, it could clump together.
Pour into Decorative Container
Using a funnel or measuring cup, pour the colored sugar into a decorative container.
Add Edible Glitter
Add edible glitter for some extra sparkle. Shake to mix.
Make a variety of colors for larger groups of children.
