How to Make Sugared Berries

  • Author: Rose
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 8 1x


Sugared Berries are really easy to make and add a special pizazz to any dessert. You only need three ingredients and I love to use them to decorate cakes, cupcakes, cheesecakes and more! My kids also love to just pop them in their mouths for a snack!


Units Scale
  • 2 cups fresh fruit
  • 1/2 cup pasteurized egg whites
  • 1/2 cup sugar* (not powdered or confectioners sugar)


  1.  Rinse the fruit and let it air-dry at room temperature.
  2. Place the egg whites in a small, shallow bowl and whisk it to break up any stringiness.
  3. Dip the fruit in the egg whites, completely covering it. Let any excess drip off.
  4. Dip and/or roll the fruit in the sugar*.
  5. Place on a wire rack over a cookie sheet and allow it to dry overnight (or 8 hours).  
  6. Serve within 12 hours of making it.


* You can use superfine sugar, granulated sugar, sanding sugar, or coarse sugar. Powdered sugar will not work.
