Edible Christmas Gifts (2) ~ Vanilla Sugar

Vanilla Sugar

Im going to include this in a chocolate themed hamper for a friend who has a serious addiction to all things sweet - apparently this is very good stirred into hot chocolate!!

What you will need:
1 500ml Sealable Jar (I got mine from Lakeland) - sterilised.
500g Caster Sugar
1 Vanilla Pod, slit down the middle and cut into 3 bits, put in with the sugar and then decant to jar.

  1. This looks absolutely gorgeous!

    Every Christmas I like to add a bit of humour to the presents I buy, and humour + chocolate is a great combination.
    Last year I brought my best friend a whacky gadget from need a present and it brought the biggest smile to her face.

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.

  9. You can do this with other flavourings as well, I have done it with Lavender sugar - which can be used on top of cakes/scones or shortbread.
