We have been having lots of fun in the Kitchen making Edible Glitter, for
decorating chocolate treats for Christmas.
You will need a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper
50g of granulated sugar.
In a small bowl mix the food colouring into the sugar a drop at a time until you get the desired depth of colour. This took two drops of my red food colouring and 4 drops of the green.
Spread the sugar over the greaseproof paper.
Bake in the oven at 180°C (160°C for fan ovens) GM4 for 10 minutes.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
Blitz in a food processor.
Store in an airtight container.

I have used granulated sugar rather than caster sugar as the larger size crystals withstand the heat better.
