Chocolate Sparklers and Autumn Flowers

This was something we did at brownies a couple of years ago (I think) and we did it again last night as we were doing firework safety.

Pretty simple and easy to do and they loved it.

You simply dip the end of a breadstick into chocolate spread and then roll it in sprinkles.

There were some spare breadsticks and chocolate spread left so I brought them home and let the kids have a go aswell.

Edited to add: I've just noticed the angle middle man has his thumb on this picture. I sometimes forget how strange his joints are. Sorry for drawing your attention to that if you are eating and browsing.

Little man can't keep his hand still with the excitement of having this at breakfast time which is why the photo is a touch shaky.

and talking of brownies. Last night I received a bunch of gorgeous flowers.  My birthday was last weekend but I was still on holiday last monday so missed our usual brownie night and they gave me these last night.  I love having an autumn birthday because the flowers available are more unusual and I especially love this selection.

 My absolute favourite is the miniature ornamental cabbage with the pin in the centre.

but then I really like the perfection of these small white flowers which I have no idea of their name.  The blue one is a favourite too but again I have no idea what it is called.
