Aren’t big sprinkles adorable? The only problem is they’re so hard to find. And then they’re CRUNCHY, which isn’t very enjoyable when you’re taking a bite of a soft, fluffy cupcake, right? So, I’ve taken to making them myself. You can make different shapes, but today I really want to show you hearts. They’re really simple. Simply take a handful of candy melts in your desired color and heat for about 30(+/-) seconds in the microwave to melt:
Stir the melts until all smooth. Transfer mixture into the corner of a large ziploc bag or frosting piping bag and cut the tip off.
Line a tray with wax paper. Carefully squeeze out heart shapes, one side at a time. Squeeze briefly from the top, angling the heart side to the center, then pulling the shape, without squeezing any more out. Sort of just dragging what you’ve already squeezed:
Ohhh. So cute! And SOFT, so they won’t break your teeth. Hooray!
Make as many as you like. zip. zap. zoom. And you’re done! Then, top your favorite treats. Like cookies, sundaes, or cupcakes.
Use just one , or…
…lots. Why not? We’re equal opportunity sprinklers!
