Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice Sprinkles

Pumpkin Pie Sprinkles

 

Homemade pumpkin pie spice sprinkles are the perfect bridge between summer ice cream treats and and fall baking.  I put my pumpkin pie spice sprinkles over vanilla bean ice cream in a homemade graham cracker waffle cone.  But, they would also add a fall flavor punch to any dessert!

Making homemade sprinkles is so much easier than I ever imagined; see my post on homemade strawberry sprinkles for Parade magazine for a primer.

The key to the flavor of these sprinkles is pumpkin pie spice.  If you aren't able to find the spice mixture in your area, you can buy it online or make your own homemade pumpkin pie spice.

Wilton Decorating Round Icing Tip #4

This is the tip I used to pipe rows of homemade sprinkles.  My four year old was able to help with this.  You can do it!

Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice Sprinkles

Yield: A pint-sized jar of sprinkles

Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice Sprinkles

Ingredients

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 teaspoons water

Instructions

  1. Mix all ingredients until fully combined.
  2. Pipe thin long lines (I used Wilton tip #4) onto parchment paper. Don't worry about the lines being perfect - you'll be breaking them up later. If you don't have a pastry tip, you can just cut a tiny hole in the corner of a sandwich bag.
  3. Leave the sprinkles out to dry overnight.
  4. Break the sprinkles up into sprinkle-sized pieces. You could use a knife for this, but it's just as easy to use your hands. They break up really easily.

    What a neat idea. I would never have though of making my own sprinkles but it sounds really easy!

    Hi. Are there any food safety issues with the egg whites not being heated at all? Also, is it best to store these in an airtight container, the fridge? Thanks so much for the recipe! Can’t wait to try it :-)

      Curious about the egg whites too. This sounds soooo good!

        Brave Tart has a recipe for no-egg white sprinkles that you can try. I don’t really worry about it, but you could also use Safest Choice Pasteurized eggs.

      Brave Tart has a recipe for no-egg white sprinkles that you can try. I don’t really worry about it, but you could also use Safest Choice Pasteurized eggs. I store them in a glass pint jar in my pantry. I think they’ll last a really long time, but I haven’t tested that out yet.

    How do you store them and how long do they last?
    I am very excited to try these. My boys are going to LOVE you! :)

    i’m absolutely making these; they’re perfect for right now, and i’ve been putting off making homemade sprinkles for way too long. love them! They look great, Stef.

    This is incredible! I tried with unsweetened cocoa, and they turned out great. So much more delicious than store bought. And if you are careful, you can even pipe out thicker lines/shapes and use as decorations, just let them dry a little longer.
