There’s always room in life for our fairy bread recipe – fact! Fairy bread love hearts make a super simple party food, tea party snack or kids breakfast treat.

How To Make Fairy Bread

I don’t know about you but I like childhood to be just a little bit magical and making a batch of fairy bread really helps that magic to pop! Super cute celebration ideas.

Seriously it couldn’t be easier to make fairy bread – you just need the cheap white sliced bread, butter and sugar sprinkles – that’s it. Perfect little breakfast to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

It’s so simple and it’s an easy snack kids can make for themselves!

How To Make Bread Shapes

If you’re making shaped fairy bread then it’s way easier to cut out the shapes of bread first.

Once they’re cut then add the butter otherwise the the buttery shapes will keep getting caught up in the cookie cutters. 

Can You Make Sprinkle Bread The Night Before?

You can, BUT…. the colour from the sugar sprinkles might run into your butter as the butter can make the sprinkles a bit soggy.

Make The Fairy Bread Recipe Your Way

Make our kid friendly recipes your way…

  • If you want to be healthier use wholemeal bread
  • Switch up the sprinkles, use different colours or shapes – little silver balls and blue stars work well.
  • I sometimes like to add a little extra magical touch and sprinkle over edible glitter too.
  • Change the love hearts to stars or other shapes – they’re easy to match to party themes too.
