Have you heard of “fairy bread”? Apparently it is all the rage at the moment. Basically you take a slice of bread, butter it and sprinkle hundreds and thousands all over it. Healthy I know. From what I’ve read and heard on the radio, it originates from Australia and is typically served at kid’s birthday parties. It isn’t something you want to introduce for breakfast!
I had all good intentions of making some “spooky” fairy bread for Halloween but hey, life got in the way and it just wasn’t priority. I thought I’d get my bum in gear though and make some festive fairy bread for Christmas.
If you want to make your own Christmas Fairy Bread, you will need the following 3 ingredients.
- The cheapest white bread you can find. I did consider using our regular bread which is usually a seeded one, but white works so much better, even if it has zero nutritional value.
- Butter or margarine. Any will do.
- Hundreds and thousands that are “Christmas” in colour. So think red, white and green or blue, silver and white for example.
Take your slice of bread and butter it. Sprinkle over the hundreds and thousands. Cut into triangles, squares, circles, stars – any shape goes. Eat and enjoy.
