When I was planning Bella’s second Sesame Street birthday party, one of my best friends Tania told me to try making fairy bread. She mentioned her daughter Noa loved fairy bread (Noa is one of Bella’s BFFs) and that it was a popular snack in Australia. Sure enough, all the people I know from Australia are familiar with fairy bread and I noticed the fun Minnie Mouse fairy bread Tania made for Noa’s Minnie birthday party.
For those who aren’t familiar, fairy bread is basically bread with butter (sometimes a touch of sugar) dipped in Hundreds & Thousands (round sprinkles). Then you can take these slices of bread and using cookie cutters cut out fun shapes and sizes.
I loved the fairy bread at the party and the kids enjoyed it too. I decided to try it again but this time using Nutella instead. We love Nutella so I thought it would make it taste even better! It turned out delicious! Here are some step-by-step instructions and the super easy recipe below!
This time I toasted the bread to make it easier to cut (and because I love toasted bread more). Spread nutella evenly on one side. (Tip: Try to look for bigger bread slices so you’ll get more pieces).
I love using Hundreds & Thousands sprinkles. They are the small round multicoloured ones. They stick easier and they look better. There are several different types of sprinkles out there and any will work actually, but these are my favourites.
There are two ways of getting the sprinkles on. You can either use a spoon and spoon them on the bread or put them on a plate and face plant the bread onto the plate (I feel this method actually works better).
When you’ve got the sprinkles on, use your cutters to cut out your desired shapes.
And your done! They look great – taste awesome (who does’t love Nutella) and you can actually customize the sprinkles and choose colors that best suit your party or theme.
