Homemade Edible Glitter - Colored Salt or Sugar
- Ready In:
- 1⁄2 cup coarse salt (non iodized) or 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 -10 drops food coloring, adjust for desired color
- Measure salt or sugar into a clear jar with a tight fitting lid. Add food coloring one drop at a time and screw the cap on tightly. SHAKE to combine. Repeat until desired color is reached.
- Sprinkle, dip or shake onto whatever you like. I like to put this in a clear salt shaker for easy shaking or pour some into a saucer and dip the wet rim of an empty glass in it to make the glass pretty!
- Tip: This will keep for a very long time. This stays drier and stores wonderfully as is but even better if you spread colored salt/sugar in a thin layer to air dry for about an hour or microwave in 30 second intervals, stir and repeat for about 1-2 minutes or until moisture is evaporated. You can also add a few grains of rice to absorb any moisture.

Completely fun - I used these to rim "mocktails" for my DD and a friend...theyjust thought it was the best! I Love the looks of the red and green for the holidays - I can see this recipe really getting a lot of mileage! Thanks for posting a great was to dress up so many things! **Made for Beverage Tag Nov. 2008*
How fun!!! I only made two small batches (red and green) by using 2 tablespoons sugar for each batch and 6 drops of each food coloring. I couldn't find any coarse sugar, so used regular granulated sugar. I found that the sugar clumped together when adding the coloring, so I let them sit out on a paper towel overnight to dry out a bit. I used these on Recipe #320833 #320833 and they looked pretty and added a little sweetness to a tart drink. Thanks mama for yet another keeper. And congrats on your football win!!
