Whether you call them jimmies, shots or sprinkles, I have got the thing for you! Sprinkles that are made from actual chocolate. Oh my! It is an instant upgrade to any dish of ice cream.
This small obsession I have with real chocolate sprinkles began when I had heard about homemade chocolate sprinkles at Len Libby's, a great candy/chocolate store in Scarborough, ME.
I love the homeade ice cream sold at Len Libby Candy Store in summer months; it is one of my all-time favorite guilty pleasures. The ice cream is rich and flavorful and certainly some of the best around. Len Libby's is also the home of Lenny, the world's only life size chocolate moose. So if you happen to be traveling on RT. 1 in Scarborough, ME., be sure to stop by Len Libby's, you will be glad that you did.
When I inquired about the sprinkles, the Len Libby staff assured me that the sprinkles were indeed real chocolate but not made on premise. Of course, I went right home and did an online search. King Arthur's online store sells Guittard Chololate sprinkles and Amazon sells Deruyer Chocolate Sprinkles.
Cupcakes, ice cream have never had it so good.
