Make some super-simple, sparkler snacks (say that 10x really fast!) as a tasty treat on Bonfire Night or for for a kids New Year’s Eve party!
This is really fun and easy way to create some edible sparklers for a really special treat. They are so easy that kids can do them completely independently- perfect! With Bonfire Night coming up here in the UK on November 5th, why not get the kids to make these for a little party? Or save the idea for New Years!
You will need:
bread sticks cut in half
white chocolate buttons
yellow shimmer sugar
golden sprinkles/ sugar balls
Melt a large bag of white chocolate buttons either the old fashioned way or by zapping them in the microwave for 20 seconds and stirring through. Lay out the bread sticks, melted chocolate, yellow sugar and sprinkles in a little series of bowls, and invite the kids to start by dipping the end of a stick into the chocolate to cover it. Then use that the dip and pick up the various sprinkles, creating a sparkly effect!
Leave them to set by placing in a glass or cup, or, have a little taste straight away! They’re really really scrummy!
Don’t like the idea of giving sugar and sprinkles as a special treat? How about dipping in chopped up dried apricots instead? Enjoy!
