These candies are simple to create, but make a HUGE impression! Who knew sugar could be so adorable and versatile?!
Ingredients
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 3 Tbsp water
  • Red food coloring
Instructions
  1. Place the sugar in a large bowl. Begin by adding a Tablespoon of water at a time until you've hit three Tablespoons. Add in a couple drops of red liquid food coloring.
  2. Using a spoon, combine the sugar, water and food coloring until the mixture resembles wet sand and begins to clump together.
  3. Flatten the mixture on a clean, flat work surface. I flattened mine evenly into about a ¼" thickness. Using a very small heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut hearts out of the sugar mixture. I like starting toward the edges and working my way toward the center since the sugar can crack a little. If it cracks you can always push it back down into the mixture.
  4. Place the sugared hearts carefully onto a parchment-or-silicone-lined baking sheet. Place the candies into a warm oven (about 150 degrees F) for about 10-15 minutes to allow them to set and dry. Remove from the oven, cool on the tray and serve!
