Fried Egg Candy

_MG_6039

If my life was missing anything up until now, it was definitely candy that looks like bacon and eggs. How cute are these??  I saw these in an old Taste of Home magazine and just had to make them. They’re so quick to make and only took me about 5 minutes total.  I brought a bunch of them into work with a sign that said “bacon and eggs for breakfast!” and they were a big hit.

These cute little candies would be perfect for kids to make, although I have to admit I had a blast making them as well! They’re essentially a chocolate covered pretzel, so they taste great too! Give these a try – cute, easy and tasty is a great combination. :)

Fried Egg Candy

Ingredients:

Pretzel Sticks
vanilla (or white chocolate) baking chips
yellow M&M’s

Directions:

Place pretzel sticks on waxed paper in groups of two, leaving a small space between each. In a microwave-safe bowl, heat vanilla chips at 70% power until melted; stir until smooth. For best results, stir after after 20 seconds, and don't overheat. Drop by spoonfuls over each pair of pretzel sticks. For “yolks”, place one or two M&M’s in the center of each “egg”. Allow to harden.

    We make basically the same thing (same ingredients) around Christmas, but they didn't look quite like this. I agree, they are really cute! What a great idea!
