Yes, you read it right. Chocolate sprinkles for breakfast. Only in the Netherlands, dank u.
First, you take a piece of bread. Then you spread some butter on it. And for the pièce de résistance: generously put some chocolate sprinkles right on top! The butter serves a very important role — it stops the chocolate sprinkles from falling off the bread — so slather it on generously ;)
The chocolate sprinkles come in several varieties: shaved chocolate (as in this photo), chocolate rice, multi-coloured rice, among others. The owner of the houseboat that we stayed in on our last night in Amsterdam told us that there are several varieties available in Albert Heinj, near the jams and jellies section. Unfortunately, in between our trip to Zaanse Schans and De Keukenhof, we didn’t have the time to do some last-minute shopping.
So if anyone of you is going to Holland soon, please, please, please let me know. So that I can beg you to buy for me a few boxes of these delicious breakfast treats! :D
[Note: I’ll post a review of the houseboat soon.]
