12 Funfetti Recipes That Are Beyond Amazing, Because Life Tastes Better With Sprinkles

Let’s make one thing perfectly clear — sprinkles aren’t just for kids. They aren’t just for ice cream sundaes, or birthday cakes, or sugar cookies you only make around the holidays. Sprinkles are tiny bites of happiness that, when folded into batters, doughs, and frosting, have the power to transform a regular, just okay day into a truly spectacular one. I mean, why settle for plain old vanilla when you can have Funfetti?

Yes, Funfetti. Popularized by Pillsbury, it was an absolute must-have when we were little — nothing was more exciting than biting into what seemed like an ordinary cupcake and discovering the jewel-like colors hiding inside. And now that we’re grown-ups, I see no reason why we can’t enjoy these all-star treats whenever we want. Sure, you have your Funfetti classics — think rich milkshakes, colorful cakes, and rainbow cookies — but as long as we’re indulging, let’s indulge in a big way. Biscotti, doughnuts, fudge — nothing is off limits when it comes to something so playful as Funfetti. So get ready, because here are 12 Funfetti recipes that will have you seeing the best way possible, of course.
