Christmas Tree Fairy Bread is perfect for holiday party treats.

Fairy bread is a dish commonly served at children’s parties in Australia, and with me being Australian, of course I brought this tradition to the US for my own children when I moved here.

To make this tasty treat, here is what you need:

  • Bread slices
  • Butter
  • Nonpareils (or as we Aussies call them ‘hundreds and thousands’) in festive colors
  • Nutella
  • Festive cookie cutter

Kids will love helping in the kitchen to make these festive treats.

Using a cookie cutter, cut festive shapes out of your bread slices.

Soften the butter (don’t melt it) and spread a thin layer on each shaped bread slice.  Don’t spread it on the trunk of the tree.

Place the tree face down in a shallow bowl of nonpareils until the bread is covered.

Carefully spread a little Nutella on the tree trunk.  And there you have it – Christmas-themed fairy bread!

Have you made any fun holiday treats?  I would love to hear what you have made in the comments below.

  1. When I saw the pic at the top I never would have guessed that it was bread used to make the tree. Great idea!
