4.5 from 2 reviews

My daughter loves to makes these candy creams because they are so fast, easy and delicious.


  • 1 Egg White
  • 23 cups Powdered Sugar
  • Food Coloring
  • Essential Oils (for flavoring)


  1. Place the egg white in a mixing bowl and beat with a wire whisk until frothy, but not stiff.
  2. Stir the powdered sugar into the egg white until it is too stiff to stir any longer.
  3. Add in powdered sugar and mix it with your hands until it is the consistency of a firm dough. You may not use all of the powdered sugar. I only needed about 2 1/2 cups total.
  4. Divide the dough into four sections and place in small bowls. Add a little bit of food coloring to each bowl, correlating it with the flavors you will be using.
  5. Pour 2 drops of essential oil into each bowl, correlating it with the food colors you used.
  6. Mix each bowl of candy dough, essential oil, and food coloring together with your hands.
  7. Roll the dough into a log shape, fold in half, and roll again, repeating this until the color is evenly distributed throughout the dough.
  8. Add a little more powdered sugar to your hands if it starts to become sticky.
  9. Divide the dough into sections that are about 1-1/2 teaspoons in volume.
  10. Roll each piece into a ball and press it down with the tines of a fork.
  11. Let the candies cure for 12-24 hours.
