Want to take your sweet tooth to the next level? Infused sugars are easy to make and can be utilized in a number of deliciously awesome ways.

Getting Fancy With Infused Sugars

Crafting infused sugar is nothing more complex than adding spices, herbs, or other flavors to sugar and letting it sit. Of course, you can make it more complex than that, depending on the combination of ingredients. Almost anything can go into sugar, from tea and coffee to dried fruits or herbs, and you can use any kind of sugar, from plain white to raw.

Below are just a few infusion ideas to get you started. How you use them is up to you.
