I am in love with this edible drink confetti, aren’t you?! I had seen sugar sheets at my local craft store and always wondered what I could do with them. So one day I decided to grab one and see if I could use punches to make some sort of fun food craft. It totally worked! And I just love how they turned out. While I only did the DIY confetti in hot cocoa in these posts, I know they would be awesome in cocktails, juice and pretty much any other beverage you could think of. They would even be pretty darn cute in milk (the sugar sheets come in colors too! And while my store didn’t have them they come in patterns and letters too!).
The sugar sheets are pretty thin but still sturdy enough to work with. I just cut a strip off with regular scissors and used it in my punch. These sheets come with a clear acetate backing to make it a little sturdier to work with. Leave it on when making larger shapes or letters and then peel it off before you add them to the drink.
For the smaller punches, you’ll want to remove the clear plastic prior to punching. Ain’t nobody got time to try to peel that almost invisible backing off of a million tiny little triangles. I tried a few different punches and they all worked great. The options are totally endless. Plus you can get seasonal shapes too! How cute would little snowflakes be in hot cocoa?! Sprinkles are totally yesterdays news.
You can do super trendy triangles.
You can holla at your girl.
You can send a love note to your boo.
Or you can make cute little polka dots.
My youngest LOVED having the edible confetti in his hot cocoa. The sugar sheets are slightly sweet and taste kind of like fondant but are so thin there is actually very little flavor. I was worried about how quickly the edible confetti would dissolve in the warm drink but they totally held up. Quick tip: to put them in the drink so they look cutest, you have to try to drop them so they land evenly. If you drop them in sideways, they have a tendency to dip in to the liquid and you end up with some liquid on top or they just sink below the surface. It still looks cute but you do not get the maximum cute factor.
I hope you will try this DIY confetti in your beverages and let me know how you liked it! (You can see another example in a cocktail post I did. Also super cute!)
