Now this is a different type of bacon and eggs than you’re used to! I actually got this recipe years ago when I worked at a Kwik Kopy (a franchise print shop). A lady came in to make copies of this recipe to send to her relatives. As I helped her make the copies, I asked her about it and she let me make a copy. WoooHooo!! And then, a few days later also brought me a sample…bonus!! They were yummy and super easy to make and I wanted to share with all of y’all!
To make your own very yummy bacon and eggs all you need is:
A bag of M&M’s (sorting out the yellow ones but of course other colors are fine too)
A bag of stick pretzels
Here’s how you make it:
Sort the M&M’s and put aside all the yellow ones. You can also use the other colors too but for the “true bacon and eggs” I use yellow.
Arrange the pretzel sticks (this is the “bacon”) two by two on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
Melt the almond bark (this represents the “egg whites”) and then spoon out teaspoonfuls onto the pretzel stick pairings/sets. I usually do about 7-10 sets at a time so that the melted almond bark is still a little soft when I add the M&M’s.
Next, add two yellow M&M’s (these are the “egg yolks”) onto the melted almond bark that is just beginning to firm up.
You can put it in the fridge to set faster or just let them set naturally. It’s a fun little treat that I hope you enjoy.
I typically make this around Christmastime and no, I don’t have a reason for that it just seems to be when I do it.
What fun things to eat have you made lately?
