real chocolate sprinkles near Boston?

rememberme Dec 11, 2008 04:51 AM

Does anyone know where I can buy real (e.g. Guittard or another brand) of chocolate sprinkles in the Boston area? I used to get them at Verna's cake supply store in North Cambridge, but that store no longer exists.

    You can get them at Marty's in Newton. I seem to think they have both Callebaut and Valrhona.

        Marty's definitely has the Callebaut, real dark chocolate "vermicelli", at the by far the best price around. I buy a couple of big containers every time I go in, and everyone loves them.

        I sent my husband off to Marty's and he came home with two tubs. Delicious. Thanks for the help! (I want them for what sounds like a fabulous recipe for Rum Balls in the local paper, from Christ Kimball, the Kitchen Detective.)

            Don't forget to just sprinkle them on top of chocolate chip ice cream. Yum!

              The same as Chocolate Jimmies? Vermicelli sounds way too fancy to be Jimmies ;)

                They're actually like Jimmies used to be, when I was a kid. Now, they're usually tasteless, and the ingredient list is wax, corn syryp and food coloring. These are the real deal, 55% dark chocolate, real Jimmies.
