Fairy bread is a delicious 3-ingredient party treat from Australia. We are taking it to the next level with themed versions kids will love.

Being raised in Australia, this treat was a staple at every child’s birthday party. It’s a simple 3-ingredient treat made with cheap ingredients, but it’s colorful, fun, and delicious.

  • Cheap square white bread (if you have food allergies, then use the bread you already enjoy)
  • Hundreds and thousands (also known as sprinkles or nonpareils)
  • Butter (or margarine)


  1. Butter the bread all the way to the crust.
  2. Pour hundreds and thousands over the top and spread them to the crust.
  3. Cut your bread into a triangle shape.

Tip: If you have a gluten-free child, they can still enjoy this delicious party treat. Simply switch out the cheap white bread, for a gluten-free bread. My son loves that he can still enjoy it.

The twins’ may not have been born there, but they love it for a special treat occasionally. I’ve also served it for birthday parties here in the U.S.

Although most people prefer the original version, I’ve gotten creative over the past few years to tie it in with party and holiday themes.
