  • Place all ingredients in a small bowl.
  • Whisk to combine.
  • Store at room temperature.
  • Shake or stir gently before using.


The ratio of powdered sugar to regular is about 1 3/4 cups powdered sugar to 1 cup granulated sugar. If you want to use a different sweetener, you'll need to take this and sweetness into consideration. 
The recipe is pretty forgiving, so if the sweetness factor isn't that big of a deal for you, then don't worry too much about it.
If you'd like to grind your own sweetener for this recipe, use about 1/4 cup granulated sweetener (I prefer low carb sweeteners or coconut sugar). If you want to use honey or maple syrup, about 1/2 the amount should work so 1/8 cup to 3 Tbsp.
