Sandcastle Sugar Cubes
- 1 cup of light brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons of water
- Mixing bowl
- Castle Chocolate Candy Mold
- Parchment or wax paper (optional)
- Clear favor bags (optional)
In a mixing bowl, mix light brown sugar with two teaspoons of water together until it becomes a paste-like consistency. Scoop small amounts of the pasty sugar into your castle candy mold. Remove excess sugar with a toothpick. Once all molds are filled, lightly push down on molded sugar with parchment paper and make sure you fill in all of the nooks and crannies of the mold details. Depending on the humidity of your home, allow 24-36 hours to dry, uncovered. Once completely hardened to a sugar cube, carefully take out the sandcastle cubes from the molds. Pop them into your favorite tea or favor bags for later and enjoy!
Special Notes: Due to the texture of brown sugar and the fine detail of the candy mold, you won't see the tiny castle details! And if you are putting these in favor bags, be sure to allow the sugar cubes extra hardening time out of the plastic mold as they could still retain some moisture.
