We’ve put a spin on a childhood favorite with this Pixie bread!
Alright guys, this month is the beginning of a new monthly series we are doing, with a group of extremely talented ladies , called Blockbuster Bloggers. Each month we’ll choose a movie that will coming to theaters that month and on it’s release date we share all sorts of fun crafts, and delicious recipes to go along with the movie. This month’s movie is Pan!
Clockwise: Pixie Bread from Home Made Interest, Pirate Munch Party Mix from Around My Family Table, Anything is Possible Free Printable from Liz on Call, Flying in the Clouds Pirate Punch from Lady Behind the Curtain, Tiger Lily Truffles from Bread Booze Bacon, Pan Necklace Craft from Celebrating Family, Neverland Pirates Treasure Popcorn Mix from The Love Nerds, Pan Quote Printables from Reasons to Skip the Housework, Mermaid’s Milk from Popsiculutre, Talk Like a Pirate Treasure Hunt from A Whimsicle Life
Are you as excited about Pan as we are? I’m totally psyched to see the story of how everyone in Neverland became who they are, especially the pirates…I have a thing for pirates and Hugh Jackman and Garrett Hedlund *swoon*. My niece on the other hand is all about Tinkerbell and her pixie friends. So when I was thinking about a recipe to go along with the movie I thought of the classic children’s treat from Australia, fairy bread. Of course we all know pixies aren’t fairies, they are sassier, and they have pixie dust. Peter Pan wouldn’t be flying around without that! So, Melinda and I turned fairy bread into Pixie Bread with star shapes, and pixie dust.
The recipe is simple, and sweet, what kid doesn’t love that? We cut soft white bread into star shapes and spread a thin layer of softened butter over it. Then we let the kids go to town with brightly colored sprinkles in all different shapes and sizes. The final step was dusting the sandwiches with a sprinkle of magic dust, otherwise known as Pixy Stix.
We had so much fun making the little sandwiches and the kids, and adults, are ready to go see the movie. I may have to sneak in some Pixy Stix…
- 8 pieces White Bread
- 2 Tbsp Butter, softened
- Assorted sprinkles
- 4 Pixy Stix
- Cut the bread with a cookie cutter (any shape you'd like)
- Put a thin coat of butter on each piece of bread.
- Cover with sprinkles and dust with Pixy Stix.
- Have fun!
Which side are you on, Pirates or Pixies?
