DIY Pixie Sticks

A batch of these homemade treats makes a fun, creative favor for your next party. 


  • 1 teaspoon citric acid
  • 1/2 cup extra fine sugar
  • 2 tablespoons freeze dried fruit
  • Colorful paper straws

How to Make It

  1. Add dried fruit to the food processor and blend until it resembles a powder. Add sugar and citric acid. Blend. Flatten edges of one end of the straws and fold tightly to keep powder from spilling. Insert a funnel (or a coned sheet of paper) into the tip of the straws and spoon the powder into the funnel. Gently shake the funnel or use a toothpick to help fill the straws. Seal the straws by tightly bending and folding the edges.
