Snowflake Party Spoons
These Snowflake Party Spoons are a fun way to serve snack-time sweets and are perfect for swizzling into warm winter drinks like hot chocolate!
I have a confession to make: I’m an addict. A sprinkle addict, that is.
I own a million and one different kinds of sprinkles. No joke. I have, at last count, three different baskets full of different colors, shapes, and sizes of sprinkles.
And every time I hit my local cake decorating store and/or Michael’s – especially during the holiday season – I come home with half a dozen new shakers of sprinkles.
So when the team at QuirkBooks asked me if I wanted to review Jackie Alpers new book Sprinkles, it was an offer I couldn’t refuse. I mean, this book is basically justification for all of those sprinkles that I own and love, and grounds for purchasing more.
This book is a sprinkle-lovers dream. It’s filled with all sorts of stunning ideas on how to incorporate color and fun into every day things – from the simple to extravagant.
Since I live with a 6-year old, we’re on the simple side of the spectrum. Doodle loved dipping these spoons in melted chocolate and sprinkling on blue and white snowflakes for an elegant winter look. These were perfect for mixing up our hot chocolate, although we might have tried out a few just straight off the spoon. 😉

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking. In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
