Who doesn't use colored sugar this time of year?
We all know those EXPENSIVE little bottles you can buy from the grocery store. I found this recipe on line on a few different sites and thought it looked so easy, why not try it? We all use colored sugar all year round for different reasons, but there never seems to be enough in the house during the Christmas baking season. Did you know that you can make homemade colored sugar?

Those bottles from the grocery store are so little. I mean really little. This homemade recipe for colored sugar makes a good amount of sugar and if stored properly, will last a long time. You're going to want to store the colored sugar in mason jars; not plastic containers.
Add the GEL food coloring to the sugar, beginning with 1 or 2 drops.I ended up using around 6 drops for a nice red color.
Knead the food GEL into the sugar then add the cornstarch and continue to knead until everything is incorporated.
Spread the colored sugar onto a baking sheet and let it dry for about 30 minutes.
I found after it dried that there were still small "clumps" of the gel. I placed all the sugar into a sieve and pushed it through with a spoon.

Store in mason jars.
