DIY Holiday Sprinkles

It's easy to make sprinkles at home with decorators icing and parchment paper. Put leftover icing to use or make a bit extra to custom coordinate your sprinkles!

Holiday Sprinkle How-To:

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 box (1 lb.) confectioners' sugar
  • 3 tablespoons meringue powder (powdered egg whites)
  • 6 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon flavoring extract, optional
  • Food coloring


1. Beat powdered sugar, meringue powder, water and extract in a large bowl, with an electric mixer, on high speed until smooth and thick, about 1 minute.

2. Divide icing into small bowls (if making different colors). Stir food coloring in to make desired color. Cover icing tightly when not in use, icing dries quickly.

3. Transfer icing to a piping bag with a very small decorators tip. Pipe icing in long, thin lines on to parchment paper. Let set for 1 hour or until icing has completely hardened.

4. Crumble parchment paper to break hardened icing into small sprinkles.
