Chocolate Covered Breadsticks


Did you watch the Great British Bake Off? Have we all been baking breadsticks then? No? Neither have I!

But breadsticks did give me a great idea for a very quick and simple edible treat that would be great for kids parties.

I bought a couple of packs of plain breadsticks from the supermarket and pimped them with melted chocolate and sprinkled different toppings on the chocolate. I don’t know about you, but I have loads of leftover jars of sprinkles in my drawer, crying out to be used.

They were so easy and cute to look at. Like I say, great for kids to knock up and enjoy. But then I made some with plain chocolate and nuts, coconut and salt. All of a sudden these child-friendly snack-sticks became elegant party nibbles for grown-ups!


 So, take your pick – kids party or adults soiree! Either way these are delicious

Ingredients:
2 packs of plain breadsticks (make your own if you wish!!)
150 grams white chocolate
150 grams plain chocolate
Toppings (such as sprinkles, chopped nuts, sea salt)

Method:
You guessed it, melt the chocolate (microwave or bain marie)! Dunk half the sticks in the chocolate of your choice and sprinkle with any topping you so desire.



Place the sticks on greaseproof paper and allow the chocolate to set by placing them in the fridge for about 30 minutes.

Now, as Ina would say, how easy is that!!


Enjoy.
