Valentine's Day Topping

I actually bought these as a Valentine's sundae surprise for my daughter, but then we got the cupcakes so they kind of got put to the side in all the excitement. In retrospect, I guess I should have made this post before V-Day so that everyone could pick them up ahead of time. Oh well, there's always next year right? These we're actually in the bakery section of Shaws, and not in the cake supply aisle. Basically they sold off some of the excess sprinkles that they had bought for their own baked goods. I tried walking past them, but I just couldn't do it, I knew my daughter would be way too excited.

Well, I did manage to sneak them into our long holiday weekend after all. We polished off the cupcakes today, so to spice up the final one, I dumped a whole bunch of sprinkles on top of my daughter's cupcake. I tried a few by themselves: They have a decent crunch. They are not annoyingly hard, but a bit tougher than your typical soft cake sprinkle.
