Vanilla Sugar

Ever had a recipe that called for Vanilla Sugar? Don't know what Vanilla Sugar is? What happens if you know what it is and can't find it anywhere? Well, for those who don't know what Vanilla Sugar is, Vanilla sugar is a common ingredient in various recipes, such as Dutch, German, Polish, Swedish, Finnish, and Croatian desserts and various European desserts. You can make it with sugar and vanilla beans or with vanilla extract. The recipe that I have is made of sugar and vanilla extract. The reason that I looked up this recipe was because I had found a recipe for home made hot chocolate. I'll make another post for the hot chocolate. But I think that this is a MUST HAVE recipe, not just for home made hot chocolate!
1-2 cups of sugar + 1 tsp vanilla extract. Spread over parchment or wax paper lined tray and allow to dry for a few hours. Store in a plastic bag. May have to crush sugar with a rolling pin.
