Edible Glitter!!


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! My grandma showed me how to make edible glitter! It was sooo neat! And now she says is ok for me to say here how to make it so everyone can do it!


She says to do this.....


Sugar Edible Glitter

This recipe is about as simple as it gets. Depending on who you ask, it's either "sprinkles" or "glitter," but it tastes great all the same.



Preheat the oven to 350ºF/180ºC. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper in readiness. While you can use a no-heat method, applying a little bit of heat allows the sugar (i.e. "glitter") to take the color dye even better.
Divide the sugar evenly into two small bowls. You can use regular old table sugar if you want, but you'll probably find that raw sugar works better. That's because the granules are a bit bigger and withstand the heat a bit better.
Add 1/2 tablespoon of the liquid food coloring to each bowl. This comes out to about 4 to 5 drops of dye for each 1/4 cup of sugar.
Stir to cover the sugar in dye. Ensure that the color is on most or all of the sugar.
Spread the sugar across the parchment paper on the baking sheet. Push down any lumps to make one even layer.
Place in the oven and bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Keep an eye on the sugar after 8 minutes. Depending on the oven (which may run hot), some sugars cook quicker than others. If you start to see any sugar crystals begin to melt or boil, remove from the oven.
  • While baking, check now and then and push down any lumps you see.
Allow to cool. Once cooled, the glitter sugar is ready to use or can be stored in an airtight container.
There it is!!!
Happy Glitter Everyone!!!

This seems so cool! Please post pictures if you ever make some more soon! I'd love to see :)

I made some! I used regular dye, I should say though that my oven doesn't work atm so I used my microwave...and I was being a goof and didn't think and I put one of my sugar mixes in a plastic container and it melted a hole through it  :blush:
