Notes: I hate round sprinkles. I think they are tacky and annoying. I had a jar of them, and after making so many cookies, I thought, why not make some more, AND get rid of the sprinkles! You can roll these out too and make any shape you want, but an easy thing to do is to slice them and bake them. They are good, I only ate 1 to taste it, and I hope you like them. I love chocolate, but no dice on the sprinkles! The picture is of the end one…its not so rectangle. I know…
