There are two types of people in America: Halloween people and Christmas people. Obviously you can like both, but everyone identifies with one or the other—even if you don’t celebrate either holiday, I’ll bet you’d take a side if pressed. Christmas people like Disney World and going to Target and baking. Halloween people like horror movies and soup and taking naps. I am a Halloween person.
And I don’t just like Halloween. I love it. For me, Halloween isn’t just a day where you dress up in a costume and go to a party. Halloween is a lifestyle. I celebrate it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. My fanciest cocktail glasses have tiny bats on them. There’s a wall in my house decorated with portraits of famous female horror movie villains. Heck, I’m wearing a hat with a ghost on it as I type this. And to really help me celebrate my favorite holiday year-round, I always buy Halloween sprinkles.
Halloween sprinkles are a cheap and easy way to make every day feel spooky. They cost almost nothing and you can put them on anything. Sprinkles typically mean ice cream, but that’s just the tip of the haunted iceberg.
Really, anything sweet can be eerily enhanced with some Halloween sprinkles. I regularly top pancakes, oatmeal, and smoothie bowls with a dash of ghost and skull-shaped sprinkles. For an afternoon snack, pudding cups, chocolate hummus, and fruit dip can get an upgrade with sprinkles shaped like witch hats. Obviously cupcakes, cookies, and crepes get a punch up with pumpkin sprinkles, too.
This effortless and affordable Halloween hack is a great way to get into the scary spirit whether you only celebrate Halloween in October or you spend all year pregaming spooky season.
