Try It Tuesday

When I was in elementary school, there was this kid in my class that ALWAYS ate the art supplies. I’m not even kidding. He drank glue, he chewed on pipecleaners, and he sucked on tissue paper to make his teeth change colors. No joke.

So, if you’re out there (and you know who you are even though I’m not going to call you out on this blog) this Try It is for you, sir.

Its edible glitter!

According the pin, its easy peasy and awesome.

Here’s what you need:

~1/4 cup sugar

~1/2 teaspoon food coloring (any color)


First, preheat your oven to 350*. Then, add the food coloring to your sugar. I chose red because I thought it would look like pink glitter when it finished.

Mix well.

Pour the sugar onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes.

After its finished baking, let it cool. Pour the sugar into a small bowl and stir, breaking up all the chunks that have formed. And then prepare yourself for disappointment.

Yeeeahhh…. totally doesn’t look like it did on Pinterest. Womp, womp. Oh well. Guess I’ll stick to store bought sprinkles!
