Recipe type: Candy, Dessert
This uber-cute candy is done in about five minutes and only requires three ingredients. Tuck some into Easter baskets or surprise your favorite sweet-tooth with a plate of these tonight.
1 bag thin pretzel sticks
1 bag (about 1 pound) yogurt candy baking chips or discs (or white chocolate chips or white baking chips)
About 40-50 yellow and orange M&Ms
Lay silpats, parchment paper or waxed paper on three cookie sheets.
Arrange pairs of pretzels side by side with a small space between them on the prepared cookie sheets.
Put yogurt candy baking chips (or white chocolate or white chips) into a microwave safe bowl.
Heat at about 70% power for 1 minute.
Remove from microwave, stir, and return to the microwave.
Heat at 70% power in 30 second bursts, stirring after each burst, until smooth.
Use a spoon or piping bag to spread about 2 teaspoons of the melted candy over the pairs of pretzel sticks in the rough shape of an egg.
Drop an M&M on top of the melted candy in the center of each pair of pretzels.
Let cool and firm completely before transferring to an airtight container for storage at room temperature.
Yogurt candy baking discs are found in the bulk or candy making sections at better stocked groceries and crafting stores. If you can't find them, or don't prefer them, use white chocolate or plain white baking chips or melting discs.
