Orange Sugar

Homemade Colored Sugar- Orange
Why buy colored sugar when you can make your own?  Use it to add a decorative splash of color to cookies and cakes or make a festive cocktail with a colored sugar rim - like my Dark and Spooky Halloweentini!

Makes 1/3 cup orange sugar

1/3 cup sugar
4 drops gluten free red food
2 drops gluten free yellow food

       Place sugar and food coloring in a jar.  Put the lid on and shake it until the color spreads evenly throughout the sugar.  Pour colored sugar into a zip-top bag.  Close the bag and use your hand to massage any spots where the food coloring has collected.  

Lauren Marie’s Tips:
*Use this as a base recipe to make any colored sugar (1/3 cup sugar to 6 drops food coloring).  If the sugar becomes too moist, spread the sugar out in a thin layer on a baking sheet and let it sit for one hour to dry out.
**McCormick Food Colors are gluten free.
