Posted in response to a request. This is a homemade version of the fruit-flavored candy powder that's sold in little cardboard sticks. You can lick off a spoon, or a straw, or even a licorice tube. I haven't tried it, but someone else has and said it came out very good. And since it wasn't here on zaar, now it is!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon citric acid
  • 1 teaspoon tartaric
  • 2 tablespoons any flavor powdered drink mix (kool-aid, tang, etc.)

This is a great recipe. I used it for a "Harry Potter" themed birthday party and the kids loved it!! I used double the amount of both Baking Soda and Citric acid to give it a bit more ZING
