A pat of this butter with colored sprinkles on bread or toast is enough to brighten anyone’s morning. It’s also perfect with pancakes, French toast, waffles, and other sweet-and-savory delights. [Editor’s Note: Be warned, when you spread the honey butter on something warm, the colors from the sprinkles may start to schmear, sorta like a kaleidoscope.] You can mix up your sprinkles butter and refrigerate or freeze it for later.–Jackie Alpers
