DIY Colored Sugar

Pin It
The super nice people at McCormick sent the attendees of the Mixed Conference
this box of goodies.
What a happy mail day!
I can't wait to try it all!

Did you know that you can make your own colored sugar by simply adding McCormick
Food Colors to granulated sugar?
How easy is that!
Colored sugars help to brighten any sweet treat, especially cupcakes and cookies.
I decided to make some using the pretty neon food colors that were in my gift box.

Here's how I did it.
Simply add white sugar (I used 1/3 cup) to a Ziploc baggie.
Add 5 or so drops of food coloring to the sugar.
Seal the baggie and knead it gently until the color is evenly distributed.

I found these cute little clear glass jars at the dollar store.
They are perfect for storing my pretty sugars.

I made my favorite sugar cookies (recipe coming soon) and rolled the cookie dough balls into
the colored sugar before I baked them.
Aren't they pretty!
You can customize your own colors depending on your celebration.
These cookie would be perfect for a baby shower.

See how easy that was!
What are you waiting for?
Grab some McCormick Food Colors and make pretty sugars for your holiday cookies!

Thank you McCormick!
