I am making a bunch of sugar eggs for Easter. I have a lot of sugar left over that is colored that I removed from the center of the molded eggs. Can I use this like regular sugar now? If I put it in a food processor will it go back to a more normal texture?

Why not, its just water and coloring right? So its like a colored sugar cube-you can have fancy tea!!!!

I haven't made sugar eggs in many years, but if you make yours the way I made mine, there is egg white (or meringue powder, I suppose) mixed with the sugar. That might be odd if used like regular sugar, except maybe in cooked recipes where you would use eggs anyway. I definitely wouldn't recommend it for sweetening your coffee!

The food processor might return the sugar to the normal texture, or it might make it more like superfine or powdered sugar. I really don't know.

Why not unless you made it with egg whites like some recipes call for. I'd put it in the food processor and use it in my coffee, not for baking though.

If you used egg whites i'd toss it.
