Learn How to Bake Your Own Sprinkles

That's right...I finally did it! I made my own homemade sprinkles! I have been putting this off for a while now and to be honest, I'm not really sure why. For some reason I thought they were going to be very a hard to make. But, it turns out I could not have been more wrong.

The game changer for me was my Instagram friend @awwsam. She made them a few weeks ago and they turned out amazing. So when she told me they were super easy to make, I decided it was time to stop being such a baby. After all, I do run a blog called Sprinkles for Breakfast.

The directions have meringue powder in it. How much do we need for this recipe ?

Sorry about that! It is 1 1/2 tablespoons of meringue powder. I will make sure to fix the recipe.

Love ya, girl, but homemade sprinkles are just a little too "hands-on" for me! I'll just keep shaking 'em out of the can every time I make your Confetti Krispy Mallow treats!
