Colored sugar to top cookies with, or roll them in .. sometimes I use it to top muffins when I make them for kids .. I usually use coarse sugar, and it works well ..

I was making sugar cookies and my husband asked where the colored sugar was. I didn't have any so I came to this site. This recipe worked perfectly. I put the ingredients in a cup and used a spoon to combine so I didn't get it on my fingers. Will be using this again


  1. Place sugar on waxed paper.
  2. Add one drop of food color, work in with your fingertips.
  3. Repeat step 2 until you reach the color you want.
