Make Your Own Candy Sprinkles At Home

I’m not a fan of candy sprinkles: to me, they taste like wax-covered blah. Are people like me consigned to a dull-sprinkle-free existence, though? No! Using a few simple ingredients, a pastry bag, and your choice of flavors, it’s possible to make your own sprinkles at home.

Unless your household eats a truly alarming number of ice cream sundaes, you probably won’t save much money with this DIY project. Maybe if you already have every supply on hand, including a fine-tip pastry bag. The treat is being able to choose your own flavorings and colors, and knowing that you can make sprinkles at home, even if you decide to never do it again.
