I first learned about Fairy Toast in an article touting its sudden popularity online. Apparently, Fairy Toast was popping up on websites everywhere, and Australians thought it strange. After all, they’d been serving Fairy Toast—slices of bread, slathered with butter and topped with rainbow sprinkles—at birthday parties for many years now. But the news was just spreading to the rest of the world. And the rest of the world loved it.
The kids at my house were instantly fond of the idea. We made a traditional take on the toast. Then the kids pulled out the sprinkles and started playing around with colors, toppings and other twists. And this version has become one of our favorites.
Chocolate-hazelnut spread, rainbow chips and toast. It’s crunchy, sweet and splendid for snacktime. Or birthday parties. Or any old time you just need a slice of Fairy Toast, stat. (And now that you also know Fairy Toast is a thing, I’ll bet that happens to be more often than you ever imagined.)
