Sprinkles! Recipes and Ideas for Rainbowlicious Desserts

October 12, 2013

Sprinkles! Who doesn’t love them?! And now, they have their very own cookbook.

Yes, that’s right. An entire cookbook devoted entirely to the cute little sugary pops of color.

You may be thinking, “Is this really necessary?”

Well, yes and no. Whimsy isn’t always necessary—but it’s fun and can absolutely brighten a drab day of cooking.

Sprinkles! was created by Jackie Alpers. It’s clear from the onset that Alpers knows her way around the kitchen and has an incredible eye for photography. All of Sprinkles! photographs are engaging and pleasing. Perhaps the it’s the bright subject—but each read through leaves you with swirls of colors in your head and a smile on your lips.

That’s my kind of cookbook.

Now, the actual recipes are quite simple—and that’s not a bad thing. I would say they focus more on fun rather than intense cooking/baking processes. Because of that, this is a great cookbook for those a little newer to the kitchen.

The actual layout of the cookbook is also very nice. The bright colors and cute additions really draw you in. I particularly like the sprinkles borders on many of the pages.

Other items of note in Sprinkles!:

  • Get to know your sprinkles with a vocabulary list
  • Decorating tips
  • DIY sprinkles

I chose to make the Fudge Puppies. It’s an easy three-ingredient recipe—toaster waffles, chocolate chips and sprinkles. They would be an adorable addition to a birthday party or even as a dessert (just add a scoop of ice cream).

Fudge Puppies

Mini toaster waffles
Chocolate chips

Begin by toasting your waffles and setting aside. Over medium heat in a double boiler, add your chocolate chips and stir until completely melted. Dip one half of the waffle in the chocolate, sprinkle with sprinkles and let cool/set on parchment paper.

Easy as that!
