Edible sea glass recipe


For pale sea glass, use the tiniest amount of food coloring, as a little can go a long way. The sugar has a slightly yellow cast to it before coloring, so keep that in mind when choosing your color.

  • Yield: 4 cups sea glass


  • 1¼ cups granulated sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • ¾ cup light corn syrup
  • Blue or teal gel food coloring
  • Cooking spray
How to Make It
  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, or a silpat mat. If using parchment paper, spray the paper generously with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Place a pot over medium heat, and add the granulated sugar, water, and light corn syrup. Stir with a rubber spatula until everything is melted and combined.
  3. Increase the heat to medium-high, and attach a candy thermometer to the pot. Heat the sugar until it reaches 300°F, stirring occasionally. Add a small drop of the blue or teal food coloring and mix well. When the mixture reaches 310°F, remove from the heat and mix until it stops bubbling.
  4. Pour the mixture onto the baking sheet and allow the candy to cool completely.
  5. Smash the candy into smaller pieces with your hands, a small hammer, or the back of a spoon. It might be sharp, so be careful! Transfer the candy to a resealable bag and toss it a few times, to dull any edges and give the candy the soft, smooth look of sea glass.
  6. Pour into your desired dish and enjoy!
