The fourth of July is coming up (and two days later it’s Baby G’s 2nd birthday! So bittersweet, but I digress). I wanted to try out dying sugar and thought this would be the perfect opportunity. Raspberries were on sale for $1- it was definitely a sign.
What You Will Need:
Sugar (and food coloring)
I won’t lie. I wasn’t sure how the sugar dying would work. I put a bit of sugar (approx. 2 tablespoons. Maybe 3) and one drop of food coloring. I tried using a toothpick to stir it. It kind of clumped so I used my dry (clean!) fingers to blend the color with the sugar. I was surprised but pleased- it worked! It came out really pretty and kind of glittery.
I used the coconut and put it in the raspberry and dipped the end in the blue sugar. Done!
You could use a white chocolate chip in place of the coconut (which I intended but when I went to my baking cabinet I found out I was out of white chocolate chips)! These would be great and refreshing for a 4th of July gathering and they are so easy!
