Chocolate Eggs & Bacon

I haven't made these in years and have forgotten how fun and easy they are. Yesterday, Tracy sent me an email with these adorable pretzel squares (yummy, cute, and easy...very cool!) and they reminded me of those eggs & bacon treats I really enjoyed making as a kid. So, of course we had to whip up a batch. My girls got all giggly when they put the M & M's on and realized they really do look like "eggs"! If you need a fun treat in under 5 minutes, this is a great go-to idea.


Bacon & Eggs
Ingredients:
Small pretzel sticks
White chocolate chips, candy melts, or white chocolate bark
Yellow M&M's
Wax Paper

Instructions:
Lay out a sheet of wax paper on countertop. Lay 2 pretzel sticks side by side on wax paper. Put a small blob (about a teaspoon) of melted white chocolate in center to hold pretzels together and form the "egg white". Place a yellow M&M in center of chocolate for yolk. Let harden at room temperature, then peel off and eat. You can store them in an airtight container for up to a week.
