Homemade Peeps - Coloring Confectioners Sugar??

nojunk | Mar 29, 201512:40 PM

Ok, so I want to expand my marshmallow making to include some Peeps for our get-together on Easter Sunday. I'm not interested in trying to pipe Peeps (ha ha), I'm planning to use chick & bunny shaped cookie cutters. Here's my question: all of the instructions I've read for Peeps assumes you're going to pipe them then sprinkle them with colored "sanded" sugar. Since I'm going to cut them, I'm going to need to use confectioners sugar for dusting, dipping the cutters, etc. Can I successfully color the confectioners sugar?? I want to get a pretty deep hue, but I'm afraid it will just get gummy. Any experience or ideas, hounds?? Thanks!!
