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.
