Sprinkles are AWESOME.

So lately I’ve been a little obsessed with sprinkles.Which is fine. Because sprinkles are, in fact, awesome.*

*So it fits with the Friday summer series of Things That Are Awesome I’ve been working so hard to maintain.In addition to more “normal” uses…like, perhaps, on top of a Soyummi Dark Chocolate Pudding cup……I started getting a little more ambitious with the sprinkling.

Chobani, meet Sprinkles.

And really yogurt is just one step away from frozen yogurt which is just one step away from ice cream, and that’s definitely a ‘normal’ place to get sprinkled.

But oatmeal?That was probably taking it a little too far.

funfetti oatmeal, anyone?

I’m sure you aren’t surprised, then, that it didn’t take long before I looked into food processor bowl and thought–

—I wonder what would happen if….?

Birthday Cake Nutty ButterJust in time for my 28th tomorrow.

A cashew-and-almond base (that’s right, no peanuts!) with rich vanilla flavor and buttery undertones….it’s like birthday cake and sugar cookies were churned up into nut butter and smoothed into a jar.

Yep.And if you are thinking, “So now you are giving some away, right?”

Well, you’d be wrong.Just kidding. Of course I’m giving some away. :)Happy Birthday to me YOU.Now, if only we had a smaller birthday crown.
