Edible (Kinda) Glitter

If childhood were a color it would be sparkle. No doubt about it.

With this in mind I ventured to try out this recipe to add a bit of childhood to anything. This isn't a new idea at all; it just inspired me to get creative. The pictures of this on pinterest show the most dazzling, twinkling glitter that you ever did see (check it out: Do you see why I would want to try this?! AMAZING! 

Not really all that amazing, but still pretty cool. Under the right light there was some sparkle. Aside from the sparkle making colored sugar was fun (and less expensive then buying sprinkles at the market.)

What is actually very exciting about this is that you can do it with sugar or salt! Sweet and savory sparkles for everything!

What You Need:

  • Sugar (or salt)
  • Food Coloring


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a container with a lid (I used a mason jar) add 1/4 cup of sugar to 1/2 teaspoon of food coloring. If you are using salt, use 2 Tablespoons of salt to 1/4 teaspoon of food coloring. Close the lid and shake vigorously.

Spread out the mixture onto a lined baking sheet. And pop it into the oven for 10 minutes.

Remove from oven and let cool. 

Sparkle (or color) away!
