These have changed my life forever. They look so simple. Many people I’ve introduced these to were skeptical at first, but then they would immediately fall in love as fast as I did. It’s easy to pass by a box of these in the chocolate store and not think much about it. But you should reconsider, turn around and grab one up!
I’m talking about the De Ruijter chocolate sprinkles.
An aunt of mine from the Netherlands, who is also a fellow chocolate-lover, introduced me to this magical thing. Yes, this a Dutch product. And I love it. Absolutely love it! If the Dutch wanted to take over the world, they could do it using these little sprinkles 😀
Whenever I’ve introduced my American friends to these, they look at me incredulously like, “Seriously, Lori? You’re addicted to chocolate sprinkles?” And I understand why they are confused. Here in America our chocolate sprinkles taste like nothing. They look like they are supposed to taste like something, but you just get a little crunch and that’s it. Disappointing, right?
But De Ruijter actually tastes like chocolate!!!
When my aunt introduced me to De Ruijter, she recommended that I try it on buttered toast. It’s perfect for sit-down-and-have-some-“me”-time. It’s even better with coffee in the morning!
But these sprinkles don’t have to be limited to buttered toast! I mailed a box of this goodness to a dear friend of mine, and in return she sent me a picture of having used it to decorate a cake. I love having these on top of gelato! I’ve had them with cream cheese on top of a toasted bagel. Put them on top of toast with peanut butter. I’ve poured them straight into my mouth during desperate times in dire need of a chocolate fix 😀
De Ruijter also has these available in milk chocolate, though so far I much prefer the dark chocolate sprinkles. They have chocolate shavings as well if you prefer that.
Because of these little sprinkles, I’ve experienced for the first time people almost getting angry at me over chocolate. Why? They get immediately hooked and want more. It’s a good angry 🙂 I highly recommend these, and if you haven’t tried them, you’re missing out on something wonderfully addictive!
