Child Safe Sparklers

Obviously I dont give  the mini's real sparklers, but they do see other children with them, so we came up with this as a solution.

This is a really simple and fun recipe that you can do really easily with the children.


Bread sticks
chocolate - milk or white
hundreds and thousands or sparkles


Melt the chocolate in the microwave
Dip the bread stick in the chocolate, covering approx a third or alternatively use a brush like MiniMad

Cover the chocolate area in sprinkles

Eat all the sprinkles and melted chocolate you can whilst mum has her hands full and takes pictures.


If you have a bit of time, you could always use dyed sugar or edible glitter, but I used what we had on hand and this only took 15 minutes to do yesterday evening whilst MaxiMad went to his swimming lesson.

That's a wonderful idea! I'm planning a Bonfire cake for tomorrow, and these would go brilliantly with that!

Which end do you light?

Meh proper sparklers are fine with the right supervision. Not everything that we did as kids were harmful.

what a great idea, they look fun and delicious too. Thank for your kind comment on my blog, I think my migraines are when I am tired so can't always be avoided. I'm glad yours are sorted though!

Miss Crayons is a big fan of breadsticks, chocolate and sprinkles. Looks like we have a hit here! Great idea - I am definately 'borrowing' it.

What an absolutely fabulous idea. My daughter tends to lose interest after half an hour of baking so this recipe would be perfect. The problem is she wants to eat the results and can't wait!

Lovely simple idea, which I will try. Though I do plan do let mine have a go with real sparklers for the first time this year - with close supervision of course!
