I have had these Nerds since Easter. I saved them for the sole purpose of one day using them as sprinkles for cupcakes. The time slipped away from me, yet they were always on my mind. And now, I see people using them all the time as sprinkles! Think about it, you can buy them at almost any market, they are cheap, they are bright and colorful, and most important, they are delicious! So the next time you are looking for sprinkles, consider the Nerd alternative!
