The Little Mermaid Treats – Mermaid Tails

Did you know that fairy bread is a traditional Australian party treat? Essentially, it’s nonpareil sprinkled over buttered bread.

I prefer to mix up my own combination of colors though for just about every occasion, and using shaped cookie cutters is the perfect way to personalize it for any occasion, just like these mermaid treats.

The Little Mermaid Fairy Bread Treats –  What You Need:

  • Bread – yes you can make these gluten-free too.
  • Butter
  • Non-pareils: I mixed up my own using light blue, a spring/Easter mix, green, and dark pearl blue
  • Mermaid cookie cutter (if you cannot find one, a whale and some fish will work too, just cut off the top.

Mermaid Treats Directions

You can do these a couple of ways:

  • Make the tail tip a solid color like I did, in which case you’ll need separate bowls with those individual colors.
  • Do the entire mermaid tail in the mix of colors, so you will only need that one bowl full of nonpareils.

Cut out your bread using your mermaid tail cookie cutter.

Tip: Don’t throw that excess bread away, turn it into breadcrumbs.

Butter your mermaid tails, and then dip just the end into the plain bowl of sprinkles first, and then dip the rest into the larger multi-colored bowl.
