(This is a re-post from 2008.)
Have you ever been making cookies and ran out of colored sugar?
What about wanting a special color of and you can't find it?
Have you ever tried making your own colored sugar?
It is SO super simple and so frugal! Here, let me show you how.
Here's what you need.
I use my little mini chopper,
but a regular food processor or blender would work.
1/2 cup of sugar
liquid food color of your choice
Put the sugar in the processor and add in a few drops of food color
Give it a good whir around and presto...you have colored sugar!
I store mine in mason jars. I also re-use the shaker bottles from colored sugar I've purchased in the past.
