Homemade sprinkles

I love making my own homemade sprinkles. While it is a project these will last you a long time and they are way way healthier for you. You can also make any color so that is a plus.
So here you have it, this homemade sprinkles recipe in case you didn’t get it on the last post. I used these sprinkles for the triple chocolate donuts as well as some other goodies.

I will be making these from now on with all sorts of different colors :-) These are way way better than the regular sprinkles you buy at the store which are waxy and have trans fats (hydrogenated fats).

Once you make this once, trust me, you won’t back to the nasty store bought ones!!

Here you can see the paste before and after dying. Pictures are a bit off since I made this at night!


Homemade sprinkles

Yield: 1 cup




Mix the first four ingredients until a semi-thick paste forms.
Divide the paste into as many portions as you have colors, tinting each batch with the color of your choice.

Put the colored paste into the piping bag and, on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper, pipe out long thin lines. Take care the lines do not touch each other.
Repeat the process with the remaining colors and allow the piped lines to dry for 24 hours.

They need to be dried out to the core for this to work.
After the time has elapsed, use a bench scraper or knife to scrape off the dried sprinkle lines and then to break/chop the lines into fairly long pieces for jimmies or quite short for sprinkles.

Store in an airtight container, indefinitely.

  1. This is great! I’ve made my own cajun seasoning before but since lost the recipe so I’m going to bookmark yours to use next time. I love making my own because then I can tone down the heat and add more to the final dish. Sometimes I like more flavor than heat so this is a perfect way to get just what I want :) Thanks for sharing!

    I don’t have any resolutions, but my goal of eating more vegetables still stands. I just don’t like vegetables other than corn and potatoes. But they don’t really count.

    I hope you’re having a super year so far!
