It's not too difficult, I think, yes it does take some time, but all in all I think it's worth it! And to make it easier I didn't make my own sugar cookies, because I was lazy, so I bought a packet of sugar cookie mix!
So, what you need:
Your favorite sugar cookie recipe, or a sugar cookie mix
Jimmies (Sprinkles, as you other people call it)
3-4 different food dyes
What you need to do:
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Grab a piece, roll around making it soft.
Roll into a thin log
Do the same step with the other colors and wrap all the logs together.
Run the edges on some sprinkles
Bake for 10 minutes
