This Fairy Bread Recipe is So Fun
Fairy bread is such a fun idea. A colorful breakfast can't get any simpler than sprinkles on toast. While, I never had this 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 toast to the max now! The good thing about being an adult eating this? No one will limit how many you consume.
What is Fairy Bread?
The most basic description of fairy bread is a sliced white bread with margarine or butter 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.
6 Fairy Bread Ideas - Sprinkles on Toast
I'm going to show you 6 different Fairy Bread ideas in this post. I use a few different flavor combinations so there's something for everyone.
- Margarine with Rainbow Jimmies
- Margarine with Nonpareils (hundreds-and-thousands)
- Chocolate and Hazelnut Spread with Chocolate Sprinkles
- Chocolate and Hazelnut Spread with Gold Sanding Sugar
- Caramel Spread with Freeze Dried Raspberries
- Caramel Spread with Confetti Sprinkles
Here's a great one - natural sprinkles with zero artificial dyes (vegan and gf too).
Finding your favorite sprinkles on toast combination
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. From there, I had 6 different flavors all lined up.
Classic Fairy Bread
For a simple sweet, use the classic combination of hundreds and thousands or jimmies on buttered toast. If you like a richer taste, opt for the sprinkles on caramel sauce.
If You Love Chocolate
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.
To the chocolate lovers out there, the chocolate sprinkles on a chocolate and hazelnut spread won't let you down. I also used gold shimmer powder on chocolate spread, which made it look luxurious.
This is a fun assortment of gold and silver sprinkles that would look beautiful on a chocolate spread!
When You Want Salted Caramel
But I didn't stop there. I brought out my American love for salted caramel, and slathered that on the next bread, topped with some freeze-dried raspberries. Before I knew it, I had created 6 different sprinkles on toast.
I probably could have kept going, but I'll leave that up to you.
Use Freeze-Dried Fruit as Sprinkles
And for those who like a fruity sweet, try the freeze dried raspberries on a caramel spread.
You can also use any type of freeze dried fruit and crumble it up.
How to Make Fairy Bread
This recipe is so easy to make. You'll need the following ingredients:
- White toast (preferably)
- Margarine or butter
- Your favorite sprinkles
Take white bread and spread with butter or margarine. Then sprinkle on 100s and 1000s. Then you cut into triangles.
Voila! Your fairy bread is ready to be served.

Tina. I *love* this! I kind of want to serve fairy toast for dinner tonight... it's so simple, and as a sprinkle hoarder, it speaks to me. My daughter would of course think it was brilliant too. It's a shame her birthday passed, but we're in the correct month, so I suppose a little belated celebration couldn't hurt, right?
