Flavored with all-natural freeze dried fruit, these sweet treats are sure to be a hit. [Helpful notes! We found a nice selection of freeze dried fruit at our local Trader Joe's grocery store: strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and pineapple! When funneling your powder mixture into the straws, scoop a very small amount at a time to prevent it from backing up in the paper cone.] Materials/Tools: freeze dried fruit granulated white sugar paper drinking straws clean coffee grinder/mill Instructions: 1. Combine ? cup of granulated sugar and 1/8 cup of freeze dried fruit in a clean coffee grinder/mill. Process until ingredients are combined in a powder. 2. Form a cone from a sheet of paper, making an opening in the cone small enough to funnel ingredients into a drinking straw. Secure with tape. 3. Fold up and pinch end of paper straw. Pour a small amount of powder into the cone and funnel into straw. Fold up and pinch other end of paper straw.
