Kool-Aid Candy Dots

Kool-Aid Candy Dots

It’s been hot here lately! And by hot, I mean too hot to turn on the oven and bake! But, the kids and I wanted to make something fun. So, we put our creative minds to work and made some Kool-Aid Candy Dots that are PERFECT for sunny days! They are easier than easy to make and they only require 3 ingredients (so they are extremely cheap). Get your kids involved because these are incredibly kid-friendly!

Kool-Aid Candy Dots. An easy candy recipe that doesn't require any cooking!

I cut strips of plain white paper into strips 2 inches wide. Then, I cut wax paper into matching 2 inch wide strips. I connected to two together using clear double sided tape.

For these easy to make Kool-Aid Candy Dots, you need a few easy to find ingredients (which we happen to already have in the pantry!)

How to make Kool-Aid Candy Dots with only 3 ingredients

Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups of powdered sugar
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 tsp of Kool-Aid flavoring (like THIS)

Instructions

  1. Using an electric mixer (I used my Kitchen-Aid), whip the egg white and the powdered sugar together for about 4- 5 minutes.
  2. Separate your combined amount into 4 equal parts.
  3. Add the Kool-Aid powder and stir it up with a spoon.
  4. Place your colored mixtures into plastic baggies.
  5. Cut a small piece off the tip of the baggies and make small dots on the wax side of your paper strips.
  6. The candies will harden completely over night. But, you can still eat them when they are slightly squishy (that’s up to you and your kids!).

  1. Do the buttons in finished form need to be stored in the fridge for safety or can they be stored in an airtight container? Could you substitute egg white powder and water for fresh egg whites to eliminate the need for refrigeration?

    1. I would keep them refrigerated just to be safe:) I’ve never used egg white powder, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. Give it a try and let me know! XO

    2. The moisture in the fridge will ‘melt’ the candy dots an airtight container would be a better choice – and yes you could use powdered egg whites, in fact it would be safer as they are pasteurized.

  2. I was just wondering if you could email me the recipe for these? I only have my cell phone to get online with and for some reason its not bringing up the recipe. They look good and I loved eating them as a child so I think my boys would have a lot of fun making them, especially being something I liked so much when I was younger 🙂 Thanks, Amber

  3. you could also use freezer paper rather than having to piece together wax & regular paper since one side of freezer paper is waxed 🙂
