Sprinkles (also called jimmies) are very small pieces of confectionery used as a decoration or to add texture to desserts - typically cupcakes, cookies, doughnuts, ice cream, frozen yogurt, and some puddings. The candies, which are produced in a variety of colors, are usually too small to be eaten individually.
Decorating Sprinkles can be tinted in numerous colors.
This how to baking technique is used with the: Vanilla Orange Frozen Yogurt Push Up Pops Recipe Tutoiral
HOW TO TIPS:
1. Take about 1/4 cup of white sprinkles and put them in a small zip-top bag.
Dip a toothpick into some orange gel coloring and then stir the toothpick in the sprinkles to transfer the color.
You DO NOT need a lot of coloring, and it is best to aim for pastels with this technique, so the sprinkles don't stick together from the moisture in the food color.
2. Shake and roll the bag on the counter to distribute the color to all the sprinkles, trying to color them as evenly as possible.
3. Pour the sprinkles into a shallow bowl, and let them sit, at room temperature for about an hour, to dry.
