What is Fairy Bread?
Fairy bread is such a fun idea. A colorful breakfast can’t get any simpler than fairy bread. While, I never had fairy bread when I was growing up as a kid, it’s a common kid food in other parts of the world.
But since I missed out on that part of my life, I’m thoroughly enjoying fairy bread to the max now! The good thing about being an adult eating fairy bread? No one will limit how many you consume.
The most basic description of fairy bread is a sliced white bread with margarine and covered with sprinkles. Most commonly, you’ll see these served in Australia, and often at kid’s birthday parties. It’s a very quick and easy snack to make, and of course, fun!
But Australians aren’t the only ones to eat sprinkles on toast. The Dutch also eat sprinkles on toast. They call it Hagelslag on bread, and a favorite is chocolate sprinkles. Don’t believe me? Even Amazon stocks it.
Fairy Toast is a perfect birthday breakfast idea
I count down to my birthday every year, because in our household, the birthday person unabashedly plays the “birthday day!” card. The birthday person doesn’t have to do anything, and can make whatever requests they want for food. No need to take the dog for a walk, no need to feed the baby, no need to even put used dishes in the sink. Lucky for me, it was my birthday this week.
Jonathan had dinner and dessert covered (a perfectly grilled ribeye steak and chocolate mocha cupcakes), but we had a miscommunication of sorts about the birthday breakfast. I (rightly) assumed he was making it – it was my birthday day after all! And he (rightly or wrongly) figured I would be making it since I’m the breakfast person in the household and I’m picky about my morning meal.
We ended up with nothing on the table that morning for breakfast! So of course I threw something together quickly. These fairy bread ideas are easy enough that he could definitely make this birthday breakfast, but well, hello! I’m the breakfast girl. So I happily did it. And the best part of it is that I get to share all these fairy bread ideas with you today.
Birthday breakfasts call for sprinkles, so with everything we had in the flat that morning, here it is – a Fairy Bread Smorgasbord of sprinkles on toast!

Get creative, get sprinkle messy, and have fun!
I started my fairy bread smorgasbord with a classic slice of rainbow sprinkles on toast, but I wanted more. So I pulled out the next jar of sprinkles, and put that on my toast too.
After that, I decided I needed to also add on a chocolate option (like the Dutch hagelslag). Out came my trusty jar of chocolate hazelnut spread… and the chocolate sprinkles. There. I had both the Australian fairy bread and the Dutch hagelslag on the table.

My preference is to not toast the bread for this recipe. I like the contrast between the chewiness of the white bread and the crunch in the sprinkles. It is a personal preference, so you may find that you prefer a toasted slice of bread.
