A twist on Green Eggs and Ham

For St. Patrick’s Day I usually do a couple of fun things for my kids: 
1) I have a trail of money around the house that the leprechaun has left (I have a son obsessed with pennies).
2) The trail stops by the bathroom where the leprechaun has tinkled green (Green dye. Remember I have a house full of boys that think that kind of stuff is cool).
3) I make green eggs and ham. My kids are horrified by it and won’t even take a bite.
So this year I’m skipping the traditional breakfast of green eggs and ham and am sending Austin to school with this snack of green eggs and…um…bacon. The kids had fun making these with me since their favorite book is Green Eggs and Ham.
Or the original…
I saw the original eggs and bacon idea over at Lick the Bowl Good and thought they were adorable. Monica at Lick the Bowl Good is so creative.
Green Eggs and Ham

Ingredients

  • Pretzel sticks
  • White Candy melts (can be found at Michael's or other craft store)
  • Yellow or Green M&Ms

Instructions

  1. Place pairs of pretzels onto a cookie sheet.
  2. I've done these two ways and I think I prefer the 1st way but do whatever is easier for you: 1)Place one white candy melt on top of each pair pretzel sticks and put cookie sheet in a 350 degree oven for 2-3 minutes. Once out of the oven press M&Ms onto white chocolate.2)Put white chocolate melts in a ziploc bag and microwave for 30 second intervals until melted. Cut the corner of the bag with scissors and pipe chocolate onto pretzel sticks in the size of a nickel. Press M&Ms onto white chocolate. Let the white chocolate harden before removing from parchment paper.

  8. WHat a fun twist on Monica’s bacon and eggs! My kids would love this!

  9. OMG..I was totally fooled. I actually thought they were quail eggs upon first look. What an amazing and creative way to emulate eggs into salty sweetness! I LOVE IT!

  10. These are some of the cutest things ever! I’m going to make these for my daughter to take to school for April Fool’s Day :)

  11. ha ha! I love the green yolks on these. SO glad you liked them, they’re addictive.

    My mom plans on making them for Easter this year.

    Hope the kids have a great day!

  12. Sooooo cute! You r such a fun mommy!

  13. What a SEUSStalicious idea! I’m adding a link to this on my children’s book blog where I collect Dr. Seuss ideas and plan to feature them tomorrow for Dr. Seuss’ birthday. http://www.obseussed.com/p/books.html

  14. I wonder if you could substitute the white candy melts for marshmallows? Seems like it would work similarly and be easy to get.

  15. @JJ,
    Would you melt the marshmallows? I think that would taste good but would be a sticky mess. Maybe it could work if you barely melted the marshmallow. Something to try.

  16. your the most cool mom ever, i would have loved to see some green pee in a toilet as a kid. but your not better than my mom :)

  17. CUTE idea! I’m also thinking this would be fun for Halloween- just turn them into eyeballs by adding an iris with black icing and some squiggly red lines on the white.. Fried Eyeballs! ewww

  18. Cute! The first method sounds easiest.

  19. Love this idea! I made these for my first and second graders for Dr. Seuss’s birthday and they thought I was the BEST TEACHER EVER!! :) Thanks for sharing!

    Marvelous Multiagers!

  20. Another clever idea! These are adorable and i bet tasty!

    whats the nutritional value for the recipe? i need to know for my project

  22. Hi Christy, just have to comment on your eggs and bacon. I have a granddaughter that LOVES the eggs and bacon, Each Christmas my husband would make a batch just for her. He would also make enough for the rest of the family for Christmas Eve family gift exchange. It has become a tradition for my family, We have always used Almond Bark as the egg white. Melt it in a double boiler and spoon it onto the pretzels while it is hot. Someone else (usually me) can put the “egg yolks” on top while you spoon the almond bark on the pretzels, No baking required.

    I like your idea of the green eggs and bacon, I think I will make some for my granddaughter for St, Patricks day. Boy will she be surprised. Thanks for sharing this,
    Louise

  23. Thanks for sharing! I plan to make these for my end of year school party in the Library!

  24. Savd as a favorite, I like your blog!
