I really love Easter and indulging in my favourite chocolate egg (pretty much any chocolate egg, to be honest) but more often than not we still have lots left, even weeks later. Last year I came across an egg at Halloween, Hallo blimming een!! This year the boys haven’t received quite as many eggs but as always there are still plenty to eat. This is where the Chocolate Sprinkle Stix comes in. This is a pretty nifty gizmo that coats breadsticks in sprinkles by using a fan to blow them around so they stick to the chocolate coated breadstick. Everything from a pot to melt the chocolate into, to the little dome works and works well.
Chocolate Sprinkle Stix
We broke a bit of one of the boy’s easter eggs (I won’t say who) and popped it into the yellow tube. The tube has a hole at the top which is where you fill it with really hot, but not boiling water. Using the mixing stirrer you pretty much stir the chocolate until it melts. It really doesn’t take long either. Once it has melted there is rubber lid to pop over the top, this helps to makes sure there is no excess on the dipping breadstick.
The instruction manual has a diagram of the actual size needed for the breadstick. We only had the really long ones, and using the guide meant we had lots of little cutoffs that we couldn’t use. Before dipping your breadstick there is a little funnel to fill with your choice of sprinkles. The funnel needs to be turned so when you start pouring the sprinkles in nothing comes out the other side. I found doing this before dipping the breadstick meant there was a better chance of the sprinkles sticking as the chocolate wouldn’t have started to dry out.
Making of a Chocolate Sprinkle Stix
The actual making the sprinkle stix is simple. Dip your breadstick into the melted chocolate (you may need to occasionally stir the chocolate) and then transfer to the dome. When you are ready, push the big yellow button. This will start the fans and then all you need to do is turn the funnel to allow the sprinkles to come out the bottom. The longer you hold the button the better the chance the sprinkles have to cover the breadstick. That’s it.
We made about 3 or 4 breadsticks before the fan started to become a little blocked with leftover sprinkles and dust, but a quick empty and we were back to making more. The boys loved it and I loved how simple it was. There is a stand which you can use to put the breadsticks on, but ours didn’t last long enough to use it! Everything worked really well, just as you would expect and the boys were able to make their own without any help.
Cleaning was really easy and simple too! Everything except the main base can be washed and it is dishwasher safe too!
Whats in the box?
Base Unit, Chocolate Melter, Sprinkle Dome, Funnel, Stirrer, Spoon, Breadstick holders, Tray and Display Stand.
What you need
You will need 2AA Batteries for the base unit, breadsticks, sprinkles and chocolate.
We found that the broken into small pieces Easter egg chocolate works really well. Also, chocolate buttons and chocolate spread too! I think Chocolate bars would be too thick and would take longer to melt.
