Danish term or phrase: snobrød
Out of sheer curiosity, I looked it up in Gyldendals Online and got "twistbread", which sounds a little strange to me. Another option I thought of was "bread on a stick", but is "snobrød" known and used outside Denmark at all?

bread on a stick


Explanation:
.. once a scout, always a scout :-)

Men du har ret - det er et ganske dansk fænomen. Det er svært at huske det altid har været på dansk initiativ, der er blevet spist snobrød, eller om vore nordiske brødre også gjorde det. Men ikke i mere eksotiske lande.

agree  Pernille Chapman: Det kalder de lokale dem her, når de f.eks. er med til Sankt Hans-bål. Måske kunne man skrive det sådan med "dampers" i parentes? For selvom jeg har flere britiske spejdere i familien, har jeg personligt aldrig hørt det udtryk.

dampers


Explanation:
It sure is known outside Denmark!!

Every Scout has must have eaten dampers at some time or another...
Ah, the soggy dough inside and the crunch of ash on the crust...
And if you are hungry enough, theyre still delicious!

We finally learned to make them small enough to bake through before they burned, but it is an art :-)

Our dampers were always made on sticks and held over the campfire, exactly like Danish 'snobrød'. Ideally they should be leak-proof, so that the butter, margarine, jam or whatever you put in the hole left by the stick did not simply melt and run out!

The modern versions made in the oven may be good in their own way, but they are nothing like the real thing eaten in campfire smoke after a long day trying to keep up with the rest of the troop...
Or a barbecue evening with the playgroup or Parents' evening at school.

stickbread (!)


Explanation:
I come across this term a lot doing campsite translations (Danish campsites love snobroed!) and usually call it twistbread like you suggested, but I've recently found it under the name "stickbread" in one of my books at home. The book is called "Summer nature activities for children" and is translated from German.
There's even a website (see below), although their picture doesn't really look twisty. (I see wikipedia has twistbread, stick bread and campfire bread listed under the same heading.)

Thanks for this post by the way, got me thinking about it some more!
