DIY Spooky Sugar Cubes

Is it too early to be excited about Halloween? I am holding off on the decorating until September is over but that doesn't mean I can't start getting ready. Forget that the temps are hovering around the 90's, these sugar cubes will be great come cooler herbal tea weather. I am showing the white skull first cuz it photographs better than the black.

Use candy or ice cube molds. Take about 1/2 cup of granulated sugar and add a few drops of food coloring if desired. Work the coloring in until it is well distributed. Now add water, a few drops at a time, working in well, until sugar becomes a paste. Don't add too much water at a time or the sugar will "melt". Now press firmly into molds and let sit for at least 4 hours or until harden. carefully remove from mold.

The detail is hard to see with the black but these are fantastic in person.

These are little scaredy cats!

Can't you picture serving these on a cold, blustery night?

Can you say "SPOOKY"!!!!! Diana
