This rainbow shamrock fairy bread is an easy and fun St. Patrick’s Day treat that kids (and big kids) are going to love.

You all know by now that I’m an Aussie. I might live in California, but I still bring a little bit of ‘home’ into our lives whenever I can.

One of my kids’ favorite Australian treats is fairy bread. I probably make it for them about once a month, but especially on holiday’s when I can make themed fairy bread, because nobody wants the same boring thing over and over again, it’s nice to mix it up a little.

So for St. Patrick’s Day I made this fun rainbow shamrock-themed fairy bread for the kids and they loved it.

What you need

  • bread
  • rainbow nonpareils
  • green nonpareils
  • butter
  • rolling pin
  • shamrock cookie cutter

Instructions

I like to roll out my bread a little, especially if they are smaller or thicker slices. It just makes it easier to use the cookie cutter.

Tip: Don’t throw that excess bread away, pop it into the food processor and turn it into breadcrumbs.

Spread a thin layer of butter across the stem of the shamrock and dip it into the green nonpareils. Then spread butter on the remainder of the bread and sprinkle the rainbow nonpareils over that.

And there you have it.
