Butter with Colored Sprinkles

We know all too well those mornings when you wake up grumpy. Sorta like a black cloud snatched your playful mood and refused to give it back. We suspect you know as well. We consider those kinds of days cloudy with a chance of sprinkles. Just not the sort of sprinkles you may have expected. Enter this butter with sprinkles. Perfect with pancakes, French toast, waffles, just about anything you can imagine. [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.] Originally published April 11, 2014.Renee Schettler Rossi
