To decorate the outside of your glass, brush on a light coating of corn syrup around the rim of the glass then roll in your favorite kind of sprinkles.
Baked Banana Splits
Following an ice cream theme, you can transform a traditional éclair into a tasty work of art. Making the eclairs is relatively easy, first creating the pastry then filling it with a tasty banana cream.
Each éclair can be topped with a rich chocolate glaze to up the wow factor. Transforming your éclairinto a sundae only takes a handful of sprinkles and a maraschino cherry on top.
Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwiches

To make the sandwich, replace bread with mini vanilla wafer cookies. Add a dash of peanut butter on the flat side of one cookie then add a slice of banana. Once the sandwich is put together, roll each one in your favorite sprinkle style and color.
Not only are these PB and banana bites easy to make, they’re small enough to just pop right into your mouth. Because you’re using fresh banana, it’s necessary to serve these treats fresh.
Sprinkle-Happy Krispie Treats
Fans of Rice Krispie treats will adore a beautifully sprinkled variation of this popular snack. All you need to get started is a stick of butter, a box of crispy rice cereal, and a bag of marshmallows.
You can tailor treat flavors by using flavored marshmallows, like chocolate or strawberry, instead of the traditional style. You may also want to change up your cereal choice opting for fruit-flavored krispies or the cocoa variety.
Heat the stick of butter then add marshmallows until thoroughly melted. Mix in the cereal well, ensuring all of it is coated with the warm marshmallow.You can pour the mixture onto a piece of parchment paper, adding your favorite sprinkles before it cools completely toensure they stick.
For added fun, use your best cookie cutters to shape the treats into a variety of designs.
Handmade Breakfast Pops

The tart dough is made with flour, butter, powdered sugar, egg yolks, and a pinch of salt. Ingredients are mixed together to form a dough, which needs to be refrigerated for at least an hour.
Once cold, the dough should be rolled out and cut into rectangles, then brushed with a bit of egg yolk. Use a spoonful of your best fruit preserves then add the top of the pop, using a fork to create edges all the way around.
Baking takes about 15 minutes and after a brief period of cooling, you can add a simple powdered sugar and water glaze or another favorite icing, before applying your choice of sprinkles, like sugar sprinkles in a variety of colors.
Brownies are a bakery staple, so richly delicious it’s hard to eat just one. Follow your favorite brownie recipe, bake, and let it cool before decorating the top.
