One doesn’t have to wait until Dr. Seuss’ birthday to have green eggs and ham.
Last week, the preschool my youngest son, John, 4, attends was hosting a Dr. Seuss event. This event was not only for the students who attend the school, but an open house for those who wanted to learn more about the preschool.
I signed up to bring treats and was asked to make green eggs and ham. I didn’t know what they wanted, but then I received a photo of what I was asked to make, it was a picture of pretzels, with melted white chocolate and a green M&M in the middle of it. The pretzels were supposed to look like bacon and the white chocolate and green M&M looked like an egg on it.
It looked easy enough to make. I went to the pantry to see what ingredients I needed. I quickly realized I needed to buy three ingredients.
After purchasing what I needed. I returned home and got right to work. I melted the chocolate in the microwave. I used two blocks of white almond bark and half of a white chocolate bar. I like added white chocolate to the bark because it gives it better flavor, but you could just use almond bark if you like.
While the chocolate was cooling a little bit, I laid out the pretzels in sets of three on a silicone mat. If you don’t have one, wax paper will work just fine.
I then dripped the white chocolate on the pretzels until it looked egg like and then placed the M&M in the middle.
“It really does look like and egg,” I said to myself as the treat took shape.
Then, I just waited about a half an hour for the chocolate to set.
That’s it. It’s simple, creative, tastes great and looks like it took a long time, when it didn’t. All of those things are important when you’re a busy mom. So give it a try.
2 pieces of white almond bark
1/2 a bar of white chocolate (1/2 cup of white chocolate chips would work too)
Pretzel sticks (the small ones)
Mint flavored M&Ms (You can use regular M&Ms, but you will have to pick out all of the green ones.)
This will make about 30 green eggs and ham.
Melt the chocolate in the microwave for about 1 to 2 minutes. The time all depends on your microwave. While the chocolate is cooling down a bit, simply place the pretzels in groups of three on a silicone sheet or wax paper. Then, drizzle the white chocolate on the pretzel groups of three to make them look like eggs. Finally, place the green M&M with the M down onto the white chocolate.
Wait for the chocolate to harden. Pull them off of the wax paper or silicone sheet and they are ready to eat.
