Wow! It’s almost the end of 2014 already! As one year ends and a new one begins, I wanted to share the recipe for this fun and sparkly New Year’s Party Loaf.
A fun fact about ring shaped baked goods is that they represent good luck because it represents the never-ending circle of life. Ring shaped baked goods also represent wholeness and the completion of a full year’s cycle. Fun food for though, yeah?
One thing that I think of when it comes to New Year’s Eve is all the large, elaborate, sparkly decorated parties! I mean fireworks, music, kissing… the whole she-bang! So it’s fun to match your food to the fun of the night, which is why we’re going all out with sparkles for this appetizer!
This New Year’s Party Loaf is filled with honey butter, topped with a powdered sugar glaze, and made to sparkle with edible silver and gold pearlized sugar sprinkles. It’s the perfect snack for your party guests!
This is my contributor post for Rhodes, so head on over to get the recipe and step-by-step directions for this sweet party loaf for New Year’s eve!

New Year's Party Loaf
- 1 loaf Rhodes™ bread, thawed to room temperature
- 1/2 cup butter softened
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 2 tablespoons milk
- Roll loaf into a 20-22-inch rope. Form into a circle and place in the bottom of a sprayed bundt pan. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until double in size.
- Remove wrap and bake at 350°F 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool and then make cuts lengthwise and widthwise, about 1-inch apart, without cutting through the bottom crust.
- Combine softened butter and powdered sugar well. Stir in honey and vanilla. Spread the honey butter between all the cuts. Combine sugar and cinnamon and generously sprinkle in between all cuts.
- Wrap loaf in foil and place on baking sheet. Warm in 350°F oven 15-20 minutes.
- Combine powdered sugar and milk to make glaze and drizzle on warmed bread or serve as dipping sauce.
