If you are not familiar with fairy bread, it is a popular children’s snack in Australia and New Zealand. I was first drawn to it because well it’s just so pretty! I thought for Valentine’s Day it would be super cute to do a festive version of this fairy bread!

We all know Cupid is the God of Love and not technically a fairy but I thought the name was cute anyway! I used a teenie tiny heart shaped cookie cutter to have little hearts for Cupid on my fairy bread, I think it is super cute!

Instead of using just plain butter as it is traditionally done, I made a homemade whipped honey butter for the spread. I love how it gives just a hint of extra sweetness.

Of course, you could serve this all year round as a super fun after school snack!

Cupid Fairy Bread, white bread smeared with homemade honey butter and topped with sprinkles for a yummy Valentine's day snack!
Ingredients
  • White Bread, crust cut off optional
  • Nonpareils (or hundreds and thousands)
  • Red Sugar sprinkles, or any red sprinkle you prefer
Whipped Honey Butter:
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 tsp good honey
  • ⅛ tsp salt
Instructions
Whipped Honey Butter (you can of course skip this and use regular butter if you prefer):
  1. Place the butter, salt and honey in a medium sized bowl. Whip with hand mixer until combined.
Cupid Fairy Bread:
  1. Take a slice of white bread and cut off the crusts if you prefer.
  2. Smear a thin layer of honey butter on bread. Cut diagonally to form two triangles. Place small heart shaped cookie cutter on to the bread where you would like the heart to go. Press down just slightly so there is a seal and no sprinkles will escape. I got about ¼ tsp of the red sugar sprinkles in the measuring spoon and placed them into the middle of the cookie cutter. You can use a skewer or tilt the plate so the sprinkles cover the heart shape.
  3. Next, take the nonpareils and carefully, not to get any in the cookie cutter, sprinkle the rest of the bread. Remove the cookie cutter, serve and enjoy!
