101 Days of Christmas: Colored Sugar Crystals

colored sugar crystals

I have a love/hate relationship with colored sugar sprinkles! I love using them for cookies, cupcakes, etc., but I’m not really a fan of buying — and storing — a variety of bottles just to have a broader color selection.

Thankfully, it is so easy to make your own that there’s really no reason not to!


  • 1/4-1/2 cup of sugar crystals per color
  • food dye (natural or artificial)


Pour your sugar crystals into small bowls or ramekins, 1/4-1/2 cup per color.

Add a single drop of food coloring.

Stir well.

Use immediately or store in a sealed container.

See? Really easy!
