The Doughboy's Favorite Baking Decoration: Blue Sprinkles

Created November 5, 2019

While red and green usually get the holiday spotlight, for the Doughboy, it’s all about a blue Christmas—with blue sprinkles, that is!

It probably comes as no surprise that for the Pillsbury Doughboy, blue is the best color. And whether you’re decorating snowflake cinnamon rolls or iced sugar cookies, blue sprinkles are bound to bring the magic of the season to anything you put them on. Delight in decorating all your baked treats this year with a joyful sparkle that can only come from this cool hue.

Basic Iced Holiday Sugar Cookies

Basic Iced Holiday Sugar Cookies

These simple iced holiday cookies are easy to make, but their flavor is far from basic. Top baked Pillsbury™ sugar cookies (cut into rounds or Christmas shapes) with ready-to-spread frosting, or whip up a no-fuss powdered sugar icing. Then, use any blue sprinkles you want (some of our favorites include this blue ombré sprinkle mix and blue “candy shred”) for a festive finish that everyone in the family (and the Doughboy, of course!) will love.

Snowflake Cinnamon Rolls

Let it snow outside—and inside—with these wintry-themed cinnamon rolls! Top Pillsbury™ cinnamon rolls with a decadent cream cheese icing, then add blue snowflake candy decors or any blue sprinkles you love on top to make them extra-special. Make a morning of it by having little hands help spread the frosting and decorate! The best part? You get to eat them as soon as you’re done.

Christmas Sprinkle Butter Cookies

These scratch-made, sprinkle-covered Christmas butter cookies have us dreaming of a blue Christmas this year! Swap the classic red, white and green round decorating decors for an assortment of blue-hued ones, then roll the dough in the sprinkles and refrigerate. Once baked, you’ll have a big batch of beautiful blue butter cookies no one will be able to resist.

Ugly Christmas Sweater Sugar Cookies

These sugar cookies are the cutest ugly Christmas sweaters we’ve ever seen! Take a twist on tradition and use blue cookie icing to spread on the sweater cookies. Then, use your favorite blue candies, sprinkles and decorating sugars to make your own quirky creations come to life. This is a great opportunity to get the kids in the kitchen and have fun!

Holiday Sprinkle Fudge

We just can’t get enough of the sweetness of the holidays—and this fudge is one way we keep ourselves in the spirit. Swap the red, white and green jimmies for blue ones, then stir them into the vanilla-flavored fudge mixture. Once set, cut out into shapes with Christmas-themed cookie cutters. With just four ingredients and 10 minutes of prep, this is an easy way to gift the joy of fudge (and blue sprinkles!) to anyone who could use a little Christmas cheer.

Mini Brownie Bites

Our new Place & Bake™ Brownies make for the perfect mini muffin-size chocolate bites, and they also happen to hold the Doughboy’s favorite-colored sprinkles beautifully! Bake up a batch of extra-easy, extra-delicious Mini Brownie Bites (Tip: Use the marshmallow brownies or peanut butter chip brownies for a flavor boost), then drizzle with a simple melted chocolate icing. Top with bold blue nonpareils and just like that, you’ve got a portable, poppable treat that’s ready to eat.

Easy Dipped Sugar Cookie Sticks

These easy sugar cookie sticks are true to their name. Grab your little ones, tie those apron strings and bake these fun—and EASY—sugar cookie sticks. Dip them in melted white candy coating, then dip the coated edges in bowls filled with blue sprinkles (or scatter the sprinkles over the dipped edges of the cookies) and enjoy! This is one family-friendly activity that makes for both a tasty treat and a sweet new tradition.

Candy shred, jimmies, nonpareils? Whatever types of sprinkles you love, these are the best ones to buy in the Doughboy’s favorite color, according to our test kitchens and food stylists.
