  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil see note
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon dry yellow cake mix
  • 2 tablespoons rainbow sprinkles do not use nonpareils - they will dissolve in the liquid


  • Place white chocolate chips and oil in a microwave safe bowl. Heat on HIGH in 30 second increments, stirring after each, until smooth (about 1-2 minutes). Whisk in cake mix until no lumps remain. Let cool before adding sprinkles. Once cool, stir in sprinkles and transfer to a jar. Store at room temperature.
