Green Eggs and Ham - pretzels, white chocolate and a green M&M

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.Green Eggs and Ham - A little twist on Green Eggs and Ham. A cute treat for St. Patrick's Day or Dr. Suess' birthday. the-girl-who-ate-everything.com
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.

What is a great preschool snack for Dr. Suess’ birthday or St. Patrick’s Day?

These Green Eggs and Ham Pretzel bites are! I’ve made these for our class parties and they are always a huge hit.

Or the original…
pretzels, white chocolate, and M&Ms
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.
