K, it’s time I get on the whole sprinkles band wagon.
Sprinkles were NEVER allowed in our house growing up. Sprinkles and Nerds (candies that is – not smart people, there’s actually not enough of those at our house). And not because they are pure sugar. See my mom just did not like picking sprinkles one by one up from the carpet.
In our house, especially when we were younger food was spilled, knocked over, or dropped probably more than it made it into our mouths. So, sprinkles and nerds were off-limits. Honestly, it was probably my mom’s only rule she actually stuck to.
The boys really hated the Nerds rule.
But really, they hated any type of rule. They would tell you rules were meant to be broken.
Gosh, I make my family sound so bad. We are not THAT bad. At least I don’t think we are.
I guess other’s may have a different opinion. We are definitely are not your average family.
Point of the story, sprinkles have never been an obsession of mine. I mean sure they’re cute, but I would normally pass on them because my mom ingrained into my head that sprinkles are just plain bad.
But as I was walking down the Easter isle at Target recently, frantically searching for Easter straws (yes, straws people) I spotted the most awesome sprinkles.
Easter sprinkles, fully equipped with neon pink, lime green, turquoise blue, yellow and white bunny sprinkles. I just about keeled over and died right there. Ok, that’s a little dramatic. A lot dramatic, but man they are cute. It made me crave spring that much more (15 days!), which is really not good cause it’s snowing…really hard…again. In fact I-70 is shut down because of a 54 car pile-up – insane!
Anyway, I bought um. Then I made these soft fun funfetti cookies that could not be easier. Then I sandwiched them with chocolate ganache frosting. The cookies + the chocolate frosting are so good. Really though, I can’t get over how cute these are.
Sprinkles + Cookies + Chocolate. Spring into your mouth!
