Ingredients

For Traditional Fairy Bread with Butter

  • 8 slices soft white bread
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • ¼ cup sprinkles Traditional Jimmies Sprinkles, candy confetti, and Nonpareils work the best.

For Fairy Bread with Nutella Spread Cut-Outs

  • 8 slices soft white bread
  • ¼ cup chocolate hazelnut spread such as Nutella
  • ¼ cup sprinkles Traditional Jimmies Sprinkles, candy confetti, and Nonpareils work the best.

Instructions

For Traditional Fairy Bread with Butter

  • Spread a thin layer of softened butter on each slice of bread. The butter should be thin, but thick enough to have sprinkles adhere to the bread.
    8 slices soft white bread, ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • Cut off crusts. Then, cut the slices in half diagonally.
  • Sprinkle with candy sprinkles of your choice.
    ¼ cup sprinkles
  • Have fun decorating and eating!

For Nutella Fairy Bread

  • Spread the chocolate hazelnut spread on half of the bread slices.
    8 slices soft white bread, ¼ cup chocolate hazelnut spread
  • Cut off the crusts of all slices. Then, cut all of the slices in half.
  • Place the plain bread slices on a cutting board or other firm surface.
  • Using tiny cookie cutters, cut out a shape out of the plain bread.
  • Now place a slice of the plain bread on a slice of the chocolate hazelnut bread.
  • Sprinkle the candy sprinkles of your choice in the cut outs.
    ¼ cup sprinkles
  • Have fun and enjoy!

Notes

  • For the Chocolate Hazelnut cut-outs, if you want to cover the ½ slice of bread with sprinkles first, then you will need to put a little of the Chocolate Hazelnut spread on the top piece of bread in order for it to stick. 
  • It’s best to use good old-fashioned soft white bread.
  • I don’t suggest using some of these newer thicker candy sprinkles because some would be too crunchy for this recipe.
  • Make sure you're cutting off the crusts of your bread before you sprinkle anything on it. If you like the crusts, you can always leave them on instead of cutting them off.
  • Nutritional information is for 1 slice each of the traditional fairy and the hazelnut bread.
