Chocolate Candy Holiday Desserts

cartoon of make your own sundae with jimmiesWell, it’s true, right? Add some candy to your ice cream for real fun!

Of course, jimmies (sprinkles in layman’s terms) are more than candy, they’re chocolate, and rather festive. And pretty! Do some jimmies taste better than others? Of course, but there aren’t many varieties to choose from in the store. If you know of good brands, please leave in comments.

Out here they call them sprinkles, but I’m a ” jimmies” fan-girl. And this is not my first cartoon about them, believe it or not! I have another cartoon about the importance of ice cream toppings! (And I talk about the history of jimmies there, too.)

Poor little match girl. She has no idea that most chocolate milk nowadays is SKIM milk, boo, hiss!

I use 2% milk in cereal, fine. (My father had a discussion with me recently where he insisted that I switch to 1% milk from 2%, because skim is so much healthier, totally ignoring my point that I eat full-fat ice cream at every opportunity!)

But  2% chocolate milk (or chocolate skim milk) is going too far. I won’t compromise. And for this reason, I haven’t had any chocolate milk for many years, even though it used to be one of my favorite things ever. In one coal city back east, where dairies knew how to do it right, there were 3 different brands of chocolate milk at the store. My friend insisted that I do a taste test of all 3, and of course I passed. :).

But here’s what’s even sadder:
