“Each of these Neapolitan cookies is like a snowflake,” says pastry chef Mathew Rice.
No two are the same.
As Mathew showed me how to make these stunning Neapolitan cookies, I watched him take his time gathering some chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla dough and packing the trio tightly into his ice cream scoop.
Each time, the pattern came out slightly differently and I loved them all!
I was more than a little bit surprised when Mathew shared one of his secret ingredients with me.
He went on to explain that he recently learned that the product was now all-natural and even uses beet for coloring. Check Nesquik’s site to see for yourself!
Mathew says that he likes to buy all different sprinkles and then mix them together to form his own blends. The sprinkle mix on his cookies is a beautiful example.
Mathew (shown above) created these cookies for an Ice Cream-themed fundraising event in St. Louis this weekend called Scoop and Gather. If you are in the area, be sure to check it out! You’ll also get to see this cake:
