So we all know a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, but it is also incredibly true with coffee. That first cup of coffee in the morning is so enjoyable with just a touch of a sweetness.
I got the idea last Valentine’s Day when I saw pink heart shaped sugar cubes. I loved the idea and thought it would be the perfect DIY project for Halloween (when we’re allowed to give into our sweet tooth).
Here’s how to make Candy Corn Sugar Cubes.
- 2 cups extra fine sugar
- Yellow and orange food dye
- Baking paper
- Small triangle shaped cookie cutter
To start, you’ll need three large bowls. Put 2/3 cups of sugar in each bowl. Add 1 tbsp of water to each bowl.
In one bowl add 4 drops of yellow food dye. In the second bowl add 4 drops of orange food dye. Leave the third bowl with just white sugar and water.
In each bowl mix the ingredients with a spoon until the mixture becomes coarse, like wet sand.
Scoop the orange mixture onto a sheet of baking paper. This will be the middle strip of your candy corn sugar cubes. Use the face of a large knife to press the mixture down until it’s about half an inch thick. Then use the edge of the knife to carve off the edges on either side, leaving a long strip.
Repeat this process with the yellow mixture on one side, and the white mixture on the other. When you have three colored strips, use a knife to gently push them together.
With a small triangle cookie cutter, stamp your candy corn shape. (Don’t forget the white is the tip and yellow is the bottom.)
Transfer your candy corns to new baking sheet and let them dry overnight. In the morning they will be ready for your coffee!
Hope these cute & crafty candy corn sugar cubes make your Halloween extra sugary sweet!
