Natural Decorating Sugar

WebMD Recipe from

Natural Decorating Sugar

This natural decorating sugar recipe replaces artificial food coloring with fruit juice or natural dyes to produce colorful sanding sugar perfect for creating beautiful cookies.

This Recipe Is:
Prep: 5 minutes | Total Time: 1 hour 35 minutes
  • 1/2   cup
    clear crystal sugar, white sparkling sugar or sanding sugar (see Tips), divided
  • 1   teaspoon
    frozen (thawed) cranberry, orange or Concord grape juice concentrate or natural liquid dye
  1. Place sugar in a small bowl. Stir in juice concentrate (or dye) until evenly blended. Adjust color with more additions as desired.
  2. Spread the colored sugar in a thin layer on a small parchment-lined baking sheet. Turn on the oven to 350°F for 2 minutes, then immediately turn it off. (The warm oven dries the sugar, but too much heat will burn it.) Let the sugar stand in the oven for 1 1/2 hours.


Tips: Find clear (or white) sanding sugar (aka sparkling or coarse sugar) in well-stocked baking stores, gourmet food shops or online.
