Homemade Sprinkles

READY IN: 12hrs 30mins




  • ADDITIONAL MATERIALS: #2 pastry tip, small bottles (about 50mL).
  • In a medium bowl, beat the egg white and water until frothy with an electric mixer, about 20 seconds. Then slowly beat in the powdered sugar until smooth.
  • Stir in the almond extract and a few drops of desired food coloring.
  • Line 3 rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper. Transfer the mixture to a pastry bag fitted with a small pastry tip, like #2. Pipe the batter out into lines to cover all three sheets. Do not let the lines touch one another. You can also do tiny dots.
  • Let the sheets stand at room temperature, uncovered, until the lines are completely dry, about 12 hours.
  • Once the lines have dried, use your fingers to break them up into short sprinkle-sized pieces.
  • Fill small bottles with the sprinkles.
