Here’s How To Make Fairy Bread, The Simplest (And Weirdest) ‘Treat’ From Down Under

When it comes to Australia, they’re more known for their terrifying animals than they are their delectable cuisine — I mean, it is where Vegemite was invented…

But when we heard about Fairy Bread, it gave us a whole new perspective on bad food.

You see, Australia is large…it’s actually almost as big as the continental U.S. Because of that, there are certain desserts and dishes that have become part of the national fabric, appealing to every corner of the country. Vegemite could be considered one, but Fairy Bread tops the list.

It’s easy to make, uses cheap ingredients, and looks super fun. So what goes in this tasty (read: terrible) treat? White bread, butter or margarine, and sprinkles…YUM?

Granted, it appears to be the perfect party dessert, bursting with colorful sprinkles…but don’t let that fool you!


But don’t take our word for it — here’s how to whip up your own Fairy Bread. Taste test it at home!

I can’t say I won’t be trying this for a birthday party or two in the U.S., especially since it’s so easy to make and is loaded with the one thing all kids love (sugar), but I can say I won’t be chowing down on it myself. I’ll stick to the grown-up snacks.
