Vanilla Bean Infused Sugar + Mint Cocoa Infused Sugar

 

Remember those cookies from earlier this week? These sugars were inspired by those little gems.  Instead of just sprinkling regular ol’ sugar on top (which is still totally awesome), I wanted to jazz them up a bit! Infused sugar/salt/other things was never something that appealed to me until recently.   Once I knew how easy they are to make and how snazzy they could be, I was all in!  I feel silly even posting a recipe for these, because everything was kind of eyeballed rather than actually measured, but regardless, these can be swapped and switched up as you please!  I think these would also be wonderful stirred into coffee or rimming a holiday cocktail glass.

Also, this can fall under ‘homemade gift’ territory.  Anyone who gives me a jar of vanilla bean infused sugar can just shut the front door, it’s on!
