Sweet Dr. Seuss Snack

*Click HERE for an updated version of this SUPER cute Dr. Seuss Snack!*
Tomorrow is Dr. Seuss' birthday!
I love that my kiddos' school spends the whole week celebrating one the most beloved children's authors, and I love even more that they get to read some of Dr. Seuss' wonderful books this week!
Henry's teacher asked if I would bring a fun snack for their class tomorrow and she suggested these fun and easy
GREEN EGG CANDIES!
All you need is candy melts, green M&Ms, wax paper, a template, and a squeeze bottle.
 Start by finding clip art of an egg and printing it out whatever size you want your Green Egg Candies to be. Printing the egg on a black background makes it easier to see the edges of the egg. Place the printed egg under some wax paper so that you can trace the shape on top. This step isn't necessary {you can freehand the shape if you would like} but it helps to make all the candies the same size.
 Place your white candy melts in a bowl and microwave according to the package directions.
 Pour your melted candy melts into a squeeze bottle.
 Simply trace around each egg and then fill it in with candy melts. Be sure to add the green M&M before the candy hardens too much.
 Allow the candies to dry on the wax paper. Mine probably only took 15-20 minutes.
 Here's a little tip: If your candy melts start to harden up in your bottle, place the entire bottle in a cup of warm water to keep the candy as melty as possible:)
 Serve them up on a cute green plate or ship them off to school in a big box...either way your kiddos will love celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday with these fun Green Egg Candies!

Pin It!

How super cute! A heck of a lot better (and tastier) than my green eggs I tried fixing last year. Where do I get candy melts?

I had to share this so I passed on thru the 3 Sun Kissed Boys' Facebook and Twitter pages.

Victoria ObSEUSSed said...

I would eat these in a Box, I would eat them with a Fox! Great idea! I bet the kids liked these more than regular eggs. I like the tip about the wax paper to help get the shape better, and the squeeze bottle to pour the chocolate. I'd love if you linked this (and any other Seuss posts you've done) to The Dr. Seuss Link Collection at obSEUSSed. http://www.obseussed.com/2011/03/happy-birthday-dr-seuss-celebration.html Thanks! - Victoria
