Twisty Breadsticks

Sharing is caring!










These are the kids most favorite breadsticks!  I like them because they’re relatively quick and easy for yeast dough. Goes great with Italian food.

LittleChefTip: Let kids shape their own breadsticks.  They can even try twisting them into shapes of the alphabet!
