How to Make Homemade Sugar Cubes

Mix 1/2 cup sugar with 1 teaspoon water and tiny (pin drop) bit of paste food coloring. Mix well. It will feel like damp sand.

Firmly press the sugar into the heart mold.

Carefully flip mold over and remove the hearts. It is a bit tricky during the flip but,  I found it easiest to fill the mold and immediately remove so I could keep making the sugar cubes. Placing something flat on the mold and flipping all together at once made it a bit easier. Wipe mold between fillings.

Allow sugar cubes to dry and harden. Overnight is best. It doesn’t take long to have beautiful homemade sugar cubes!
