Bacon and Egg Candies
In an effort to make Mom proud, Chow Bella's taking a good, hard look at the most important meal of the day in the form of Scrambled, a mashup of breakfast recipes, news and reviews of local restaurants serving the a.m. crowd.
Upon first glance, these little candies really do look like a sunny side up egg with a pair of bacon strips. But, if you squint and get really close to the screen, you will realize that those bacon strips are salted round pretzel sticks.
We spotted a version of this on Pinterest and thought it was a super easy project that would be something clever and cute to make and give to your friends just for fun. It would also be great as a take home treat at the end of a brunch party.
All you need to do is gather up some white chocolate, some M&Ms (get more than you think you'll need, you'll only be using the yellow ones) and some pretzel sticks.
See, you probably don't even need a recipe for this. However, if you feel more comfortable with having some direction, there's a popular food blog in Maine called From Away: Cooking and Eating in Maine that has a recipe you can follow.
