Here's something for a fun snack - maybe even get the kids to do them.  Great for a party as well I should imagine

Take a packet of breadsticks (the thinner ones work best), melt some chocolate in a bowl, cover about three-quarters of the breadsticks in the melted chocolate and then lay them down on a baking tray covered with baking paper, sprinkle with hundreds and thousands, allow to cool and then allow hoards of children to decimate them in the manner of a swarm of locusts.

Here's a pic

And whilst I would like to claim credit for this idea, it must go to my sis-in-law H who had purchased one single breadstick prepared in this style for 50p from a soft play centre!  By my reckoning if you prepare them yourself you'll save a packet :)
