We had some plan changes and I needed a quick (10 mins or less) dessert to bring to a little dinner party we were going to. I grabbed out all the sprinkles I could find and put those shorties to work.
We don't own a double boiler, but this pyrex bowl on top of the boiling water did the trick. (PS - this is not my bowl - is it Shelly's???)
Then I let the Shorties go crazy. I loved how pretty they looked. And not one made it home from the party. Next year we will make them for the 4th, but only use a tip of blue sprinkles.
