You can never have too many sprinkles: Valentine's edition

I saw this picture at Fig and Ruby Sweets the other day (and let me just warn you before you click over to her blog: even her banner will make you hungry...)

Today Aaron and Christa went nearby Yosemite to spend a day snow shoeing, so Levi and Charlotte spent the day with me. Charlotte made her own version of yummy marshmallows this afternoon.

I had definitely planned on tinting the white chocolate pink, but turns out at our grocery store, white melting chocolate is only a seasonal thing. Huh? But no matter. All you really need is sprinkles. Lots.Of.Them.

In an unrelated topic, it could be just me, but I thought the the colors the this luge athlete wore would be gorgeous in a quilt.
They really looked so much brighter on our high-def TV, but I'm definitely putting this in my design file. The limey green/aqua/coral/goldenrod just popped against the black and gray. I give it a perfect score.

Either you were truly awake at 3:00 a.m., or one of our computer clocks is incorrect.

If you indeed, were up at 3:00 a.m., why?

Looks like you had tons of fun with sprinkles!!!!

I am also very Pro-Sprinkle. How can you not be?

Sprinkles are so fun! So are those little tubes of squirty icing....

I do the same thing, looking at colours. I agree - that skin colour combo would look awesome as a quilt. I think the colours in the Olympic logos and running boards of the rinks are awesome too .

I've been digging the uniforms, too. I actually was quite impressed with the "theme" colours this year. (but what was with the ones for Ukrainian figure skaters??)

Those goodies look delicious, delicious, delicious.

Not that you want to know NOW but Michaels has white melting chocolate year round. And those look delish.
