Tips & Tricks Thursday

I have not done one of these in a long time because I didn't think anyone read these post. Not to mention that I  really wasn't thinking about this post UNTIL it was to late. So, here I am, trying it again.

 Here are a few things you can do with the Sanding Sugar/Sprinkles we made a few weeks ago.

  • When making Oatmeal, Cream of Wheat, or Grits for breakfast sprinkle some of the sanding sugar on top to give the kids a sweet colorful surprise for breakfast. This also works well in cereal that need to be sweetened. 

  • For an easy way to add color to your cake batter or cookie dough, replace the plain white sugar with the color sanding sugar. The amount of color will depend on the amount of sugar needed for the recipe. This also helps reduce the chances of your batter or dough thinning out from food coloring.

  • Do you have kids that won't drink plain milk? Add a 1/4 to 1/2 tsp of sanding sugar to 1cup of milk and stir. It will give it a cool color and a slightly sweeter taste. It is much better than adding the chocolate or strawberry milk mixes. There are no extra preservatives and you can control the amount of sugar you are giving them.

If you have any other ideas or uses for the Sanding Sugar/Sprinkles let me know in the comments below. I would love to hear what you use them for.
