So for the annual BBC Children In Need school cake sale I knew we would donate some homemade goodies but I didn't want the mess and drama of weighing, mixing, flour and sugar everywhere and that's before we got to the icing stage so I thought there must be something a little more MESS and STRESS free we could make.
After a quick rummage in the cupboards and a stroke of creativity we come up with chocolate coated breadsticks.
Box of breadsticks
Cooking chocolate (we used both milk and white chocolate)
Hundreds and thousands
Edible candy stars
1. Melt the chocolate one bar at a time. We melted ours in the microwave but you can do it in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. Make sure you stir until completely melted.
2. Cover two baking sheets with parchment and cover one with your choice of sprinkles.
3. Dip as much or as little of the breadstick in to the
chocolate and then roll in the sprinkles on the
baking tray(we did try sprinkling the hundreds
and thousands on to the melted chocolate but found
that they stuck better when rolled).
4. Place your chocolate and sprinkle covered breadsticks on the other baking tray and once finished put in the fridge until the chocolate is completely firm
Voila......it really is that simple(although the process is much easier when you don't have the help of a three year old!)
If you give this recipe a go, I'd love to see your pics.
