These bread stick wands topped with melted chocolate and and sprinkles are perfect for Halloween or kids' birthday parties. They could also be fireworks or sparklers for Guy Fawkes night or just a fun recipe to make with your kids.
Bread stick wands are perfect for Halloween or Bonfire Night
Regardless of why you make them, now is the perfect time as Halloween and fireworks night are both just around the corner. If you're looking for something fun to make that's not scary but still fits the Halloween theme then these are just what you need.
Not only will your kids love these wands but if you enjoy spending time in the kitchen together then they are a great recipe for your kids to make with you. The only thing to be careful with is the hot melted chocolate.
A great recipe to make with kids
My children helped make the bread stick wands in these pictures and it was a real struggle to take the photographs before they were eaten. It was also a challenge to stop them from getting sprinkles all over the floor. I suspect I may be picking up stray sprinkles long after all the wands have been eaten! Even so, it was fun to do and makes a great half-term activity this week if you have some time at home.
However, if you can't face the mess and just need a quick and easy sweet treat for a play date or birthday party then these are also perfect. They only contain three ingredients and if you don't have any little helpers you can make them very quickly indeed. Your children will love you for it when they see them!
I had to make these bread stick wands!
At first I wasn't planning to make these bread stick wands until Master Spice came home from pre-school with one that he had proudly made himself. I wondered if he would just eat the chocolate off the end. He has a habit of doing that!
But no, he gobbled up the whole bread stick and Little Miss Spice wanted one too. There was no other option but for us to set about making them again at home.
How to adapt these bread stick fireworks or wands
You can adapt the bread stick wands to suit the occasion. Why not make them a bit more Halloween themed by using red or green candy melts instead of chocolate? Or how about using popping candy instead of sprinkles?

Breadstick Wands and Fireworks
- 100 g chocolate
- 60 g sprinkles
- 8 breadsticks
- 8 large chocolate stars (optional)
- Melt the chocolate in the microwave. Cook for a minute. Stir. Keep microwaving for 20 more seconds at a time until it is completely runny.
- Put the sprinkles in a bowl and put that bowl next to the bowl with the chocolate.
- Dip the breadsticks in the melted chocolate and then in the spinkles.
- If you have the larger chocolate stars, put a little melted chocolate on the back of each star and stick them to the ends of the wands
- Leave to set. Put them in the Fridge for 10 minutes so the chocolate hardens more quickly.
What a great birthday party idea!
Thanks Veena! These are really popular with kids (and big kids like my husband!).

These are genius! So simple and so cool..... Love the photos too xxx
Thanks so much Kate! I think the fact that they are quite colourful helped the photos to come out well because I certainly spent less time taking them than I usually do. x

This is such a creative and fun idea! Your photos are fantastic too! Thanks for linking up to #TreatPetite
Thanks Kat! I had to take the photos quite quickly as the kids were desperate to eat them but luckily I managed to get a few good ones.
Eb Gargano | Easy Peasy Foodie
These look awesome - just like fireworks and so perfect for kids. I'm pretty sure my kids would really enjoy making them...and would almost certainly wolf them down! Eb x
Thanks Eb! My kids just loved them. They did both want to dip their breadstick in the chocolate at the same time though and and a few snapped as they were a bit too enthusiatic with them! x

Fantastic idea! We all need a bit of magic and so do our kiddies. I love how quick and uncomplicated they are. I think it's time for a little bit of abracadabra 🙂 x
Thanks Jo! They almost don't need a recipe but sometimes the simple things are the best, especially if making them with your kids x
Awesome Idea..You came up with excellent treat for kids made in no time..
Thanks Lathiya! It's always good when a treat doesn't take too long to make. Last week my daughter decidedto make cake pops and it took all day because of having to make the cake first before even starting on the cake pops!
These are SO CUTE! A fun twist on chocolate covered pretzels 🙂
Thanks Christina! To be honest I hadn't even thought of chocolate covered pretzels but you're right.
Now these are pure genius....what a fab idea and great for the kids to make too.
Thanks Rebecca! We had lots of fun making them.
these are so cute and so much fun to make and eat x
Thanks Jenny! I didn't get to eat as many nice ones as I wanted because the kids ate them all - I had to eat the broken ones that you can't see in the pictures x

Gabby | The Tolerant Table
They are absolutely adorable! Definitely a recipe little hands would enjoy making
Thanks Gabby! My children loved making them although I think we lost so many sprinkles I could have made more wands if I'd been making them on my own. It was worth it though as it was fun to do!
These are so cute and such a good idea!
Thanks Hannah! I totally stole the idea from my son's pre-school although they didn't have the big chocolate stars on the end.
