Fried Egg Candy Recipe

I joke this is the only way I can get my daughter Haley to eat her bacon and eggs. We have a great time together making these treats and munching on them, too.—Melanie Hayes, Libby, Montana
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:21 servings


  • 1 package (15 ounces) pretzel sticks
  • 1 package (12 ounces) vanilla or white chips
  • 48 yellow M&M's


  • 1. Place pretzel sticks on waxed paper in groups of two, leaving a small space between each. In a microwave-safe bowl, heat vanilla chips at 70% power until melted; stir until smooth. Drop by tablespoonfuls over each pair of pretzel sticks. For "yolks", place one or two M&M's in the center of each "egg". Yield: about 3-1/2 dozen.

"This was a great way to celebrate reading with school age children! Replace the yellow candy for green and re-create the beloved children's author Dr. Seuss' story of Green Eggs and Ham. To help celebrate all things Dr Seuss, this is a quick treat that can be made with the kids. As a volunteer food editor with Taste of Home, I enjoy discovering great ideas to use with simple ingredients."
