There’s something magical about the holidays, food included! One of the easiest ways to give just about any sweet dish a festive spin? One simple ingredient that you can buy at the store or online: sprinkles!

There’s nothing wrong with traditional red and green sprinkles, but there are also a ton of fun alternatives like sparkly crystals and ones that add a touch of flavor. And, while the obvious choices may be baking them into desserts (cookies, brownies, doughnuts and cakes) I’m here to tell you that there are lots of other ways to use your sprinkles, too. How about waking up to a plate of waffles or pancakes with a colorful array of cheerful Christmas sprinkles baked right in? Or, why not sprinkle a few over your holiday-themed snack board for an extra bit of festive fun? Feeling fancy? You can even use sprinkles to decorate the rim of your coffee mug, milk cup or cocktail glass.

So, whether you’re sipping eggnog or noshing on some homemade pastries, you’re going to need some of these sprinkles!


These ornament-shaped sprinkles are the perfect way to dress up any dessert at your holiday party or gathering.

Williams Sonoma

Decorate freshly made baked goods with an assortment of sprinkles that include white pearl stars, gingerbread men, red and green jimmies, candy canes, lightbulb candies and snow-white jimmies and nonpareils. They even come in a cute Christmas tree tackle box you can display on the table!


Now these crushed up peppermints are the way to go when you want a little something extra in your cookies or hot cocoa. One bite or one sip will have you feeling festive all day long.


No matter what holiday you celebrate, these sprinkles (dedicated to snowy days and winter wonderlands) will put a smile on your face! Choose between blue, white, and silver edible decorations.

Fancy Sprinkles

While Fancy Sprinkles offers a wide variety, this 12-day set is totally on-theme for the holidays. Packed full of colorful and sparkly sprinkles, each one has a fun name like, 'Sleigh All Day' and 'Cindy Lou Who?'


Get your gingerbread fix with these delightful little sprinkles! They’re almost too cute to use, but they make for a great topping on your desserts. And, they’re a lot easier to cleanup than a whole gingerbread house!

Country Kitchen

Hosting a holiday bake off?! This decorating kit will have everything you need, décor wise. Use it when you’re baking cakes, whipping up a batch of cookies or decorating cupcakes.


You’ll definitely want to add this to your holiday wish list when you see how easy (and fun) it is to transform your baked goods with just a sprinkle!
