Mini Eggs & Bacon For Dessert – April Fool’s Day Recipe
April first is almost here. I like to have a little fun with my family, by surprising them with some food that isn’t what it seems to be. Here’s a simple little dessert or sweet snack for the kids. It’s bacon and eggs made from candy.
3 Tbsp. chocolate chips (white)
12 M&Ms (yellow)
1 Tootsie roll midget candy
1 caramel square candy
To make the eggs: melt the chocolate chips and once melted put in a Ziploc bag; snip off a corner of the Ziploc bag.
On a sheet of waxed paper, squeeze nickel sized portions of the chocolate chips onto it. Press a M&M (letter side down) into the center of each of the melted chocolate chip portions you just put on the waxed paper. Let cool.
To make the bacon: Remove the wrappers from the caramel and tootsie roll candies. In a microwave safe bowl, melt them for 4 seconds. Flatten each candy piece and then pres them together.
Now halve the candy and then press and stack the pieces, alternating layers.
Cut a 1/4 inch piece from the stack you just put together. Make a bacon strip by pinching and stretching the piece lengthwise. Cut it in half. You can create bacon ripples by gently bending the edges.
