Ingredients

Directions

  1.  Decide how much you want to make: 1 Tsp Color to 1 Cup of Sugar 
  2. Place equal amounts of yellow and blue color (½ tsp each for 1 cup of sugar) in bowl/container with lid. For a more blue-green, add more blue than yellow. For a brighter spring-green, add more yellow than green.
  3. Add 1 to 2 drops of water, just enough to get the color to dissolve to a syrup consistency, and stir.
  4. Pour sugar into the container or pour color mixture from bowl over sugar in container and cover.
  5. Shake and turn for 1-2 minutes. Open the lid and check for color coverage. Use a spoon to mix in any remaining color.
  6. Pour sugar on parchment paper and let stand until completely dry.
  7. Decorate and enjoy!


GREEN FROSTING

Enough for 1 cup frosting. Spread onto some Shamrock cookies or use piping to decorate your favorite cupcakes.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In small bowl beat butter, sugar, milk, and vanilla until light and fluffy.
  2. In small cup mix color (¼ teaspoon blue packet and ¼ teaspoon yellow packet depending on how pastel or deep of color desired) to equal part glycerin (or a few drops of water) to dissolve powder.
  3. Stir in color mix to frosting. Blend thoroughly.
  4. Mixed frosting will last for several weeks refrigerated. Oil-based recipes (such as frostings) require pre-mixing colors with glycerin or a small amount of water.

Get creative and decorate with green sugar and frosting for a sparkly array of St. Patrick's Day treats!
