You can actually find this product in specialty stores, but I am used to make it myself, as it's easier and economical!

1. Add in a mixing bowl: the

Potato Starch

(1 Tablespoon or 10 g), the

Icing Sugar

(½ Cup or 90 g)
Snow sugar

2. I also add

Shredded Coconut

(3 Tablespoons or 15 g), which Michalak didn't mention, but it's a good addition (although not required)

3. Mix all ingredients with a wire whip

4. You may also mix finely the powders with a Cup Food Chopper

5. To use for a dessert, simply sift the sugar

6. If your dessert is not too moist, the Snow Sugar will not melt

7.  However, if your dessert is too moist, the snow sugar will melt (just remember that snow sugar is no miracle when sprinkled over water for instance !)

Can be stored a few days at room temperature, in an airtight container
