Authentic Fairy Bread

Carolyn Haas


Fairy bread is just sprinkles on buttered bread, usually served at a kids' party. Apparently there are some recipes using fancy kinds of bread cut into cute shapes and gourmet butter, plus unusual sprinkles. This hilarious version is from a Huffpost article a few years ago. Too funny not to save!!

How to Make Authentic Fairy Bread


  1. Slather the butter a few centimetres thick onto the slices of bread. Cut off the crusts if you like. Make sure you spread the butter all the way to the crusts -- you want those 100s and 1000s to stick real good.
  2. Sprinkle the nonpareils generously onto the buttered bread, making sure there are no gaps.
  3. Eat fairy bread until you feel sick.
