STEP 1: Mix sugar, coconut oil, and honey in a bowl. Add approximately 3 drops of lemon candy flavoring and 1 drop each of yellow and green food dye to the mix.  Stir well. You can find edible oils (more traditionally used for candy making) like the cotton candy one we used on Amazon or your local craft store.

STEP 2: Mix well; you want to make sure the color is completely blended.
