It’s January!  A brand new year.  A fresh start.

Do you have January traditions?  Sugar Free January?  Dry January?  Kicking off the year with Whole 30?

We do things a little differently around here.  We do a sprinkle-filled January.

Well, not the whole month – but my first post of the year is one that is full of sprinkles.

Every year, our college friends descent from far and wide upon Philadelphia to celebrate New Year’s Eve with us.  It’s become my favorite holiday by far  and we are so lucky to have such a great crowd of friends who come join us annually.  

And then we continue to celebrate all day long on January 1st, because in Philly, New Year’s Eve isn’t the big deal — it’s New Year’s Day, thanks to the Mummers Parade.

So when everyone is all “January 1st! New year! New diet! No sugar! Dry January!”… well… Philadelphia turns a blind ear and drinks another beer.  And I ignore the healthy new starts and make a dessert that is as bright and festive as the Mummers Parade, and then share it over here a week or two later.

We’ve done Sprinkle Sugar Cookies and Sprinkle Sugar Cookie Bars.  This year, after moving into a new house and drowning in boxes and having two children to occupy my time, we’re going easy.  No bake.  Less than 10 minutes of hands on time.  A total crowd-pleaser.

That’s right: cake batter flavored, rainbow sprinkle rice krispie treats.  Childhood nostalgia at its finest, with an upgraded sprinkle twist.
