I gave this typical Dutch breakfast food a try for the first time last week and, well, it tasted like… chocolate sprinkles on toast. The Dutch word for this unique sort of bread topping is hagelslag (it tastes more appetising than it sounds). The original is chocolate sprinkles, but nowadays they seem to come in all flavours, shapes, and colours (including some disturbing shades of orange and pink). Dutch people usually butter their toast first before putting the sprinkles on to make them stick. Personally I prefer a layer of Nutella, for some chocolate-on-chocolate action. But it still didn’t stop the sprinkles from falling off while I ate the slice of bread. Which just proves to me that sprinkles really belong on ice cream.
