Homemade Chocolate Sprinkles
Every time I can make my own some store bought stuffs, i feel like a winner. I mean, seriously, I never thought before that we can make sprinkles, something we take for granted as store bought stuffs, aren't they? Well, not until I stumbled upon bravetart's page where the genius Stella share her secret recipe! And guess what, making sprinkles is as easy as eat them, only they need an overnight patience. But, it is so much worth to try!
85 gr powdered sugar
150 gr cocoa powder
28 ml water
28 ml vanilla extract (too much for me, i'll try 10 ml next time)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp instant coffee
Using a hand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine all of the ingredients and beat on low speed until the powdered sugar has been thoroughly moistened. Turn the speed up to medium and beat until the mixture forms a smooth, homogenous paste.
Scrape the bowl and beater down with a rubber spatula and beat for another minute to ensure no lumps remain.
Transfer the chocolate paste to the piping bag and pipe into long rows on the parchment lined sheet pans.
Place the trays of chocolate somewhere safe from kids, pets, and debris and let air dry for 24 hours.
After twenty four hours, use a bench scraper to scrape up all the chocolate lines from the parchment by holding it at a 45° angle against the first row of sprinkles then gently pushing forward. Gather up the chocolate sticks into a bundle and chop them into sprinkle sized bits.
Store in an airtight container indefinitely.
