The flavors of these sugars are concentrated, so you only need to use a little to pack quite a punch. They're great for rimming cocktail glasses (think of this as a way to fun-up mocktails at a baby shower, too), sprinkling over oatmeal or yogurt, or decorating cookies and quick breads. Check out the how-to video to see how they’re made.

Microwave at HIGH for 1 to 2 minutes or until completely dry and crisp, checking every 30 seconds (watch closely for burning). Cool completely.

Step 2
