Easy Homemade Sprinkles Recipe

Valentine’s Day is coming up and I wanted to have some special sprinkles on hand without stopping at the store. This is such an easy recipe, the hardest part is that you have to wait 12 hours to finally cut the sprinkles into pieces to use!

There are so many fun ways you could vary this recipe.

You could change up the colors for any occasion or holiday.

Another possibility is varying the size and shape of the sprinkles. They could be extra long or extra short. You could also pipe dots!

I hope you like this recipe, have fun creating! Let me know what colors you chose in the comments!
