  1. Heat oven to 225.
  2. In a ziplock bag, combine turbinado sugar and the amount of food color drops to get your desired color. Seal bag. Roll around in hands until cover coats all sugar evenly.
  3. Bake colored sugar until it is dry and no longer clumpy. You may wan to pul it out and stir a few times. The cooking time will vary depending on how much food coloring was added. On average, mine cooked 10-12 minutes. Do not overcook, keep your eye on it!
