As a kid, we would spend our summers outdoors with the rest of the kids in the neighborhood. I can’t even remember how we started making these Kool-Aid Pixie Sticks, but it was a treat that stuck around for the rest of the summer! It’s one of my favorite memories. We would sit around with bags of sugar and Kool-Aid and dip plastic spoons in the sweet mix. It was delicious! They are so easy to make and in my opinion better than the original!
All you need is two ingredients – sugar and the Kool-Aid flavor of your choice!
Take a sandwich baggie and add 1/2 cup of granulated sugar and the Kool-Aid dry mix.
Shake well until evenly dispersed.
I hot glued the bottoms of some straws together to make it cuter than taking pictures of my sandwich baggies.
Cut a small hole in the corner of your baggie and fill the straw up until about a 1/2 inch from the top. Then hot glue the other end.
Told you they were easy! Each baggie will fill about 12 straws. They aren’t quite as pretty as the ones you can fill up at the candy store but these taste better!
