Bacon and Egg Candy

When I saw these on the internet, I knew I had to make some. I love a good salty and sweet combo. The recipe is pretty easy and the cuteness factor is pretty high.

Bacon and Egg Candy Recipe:

1 package M&M's (sort through and pick out all the yellow ones)
1 package white chocolate chips, melted
1 package pretzel sticks, broken in half


Melt chocolate in the microwave or by tempering it on the stove, stirring constantly. Let the chocolate cool slightly (the "yolks" will break if the chocolate is hot). Line several baking sheets with wax paper. Spoon approximately a tablespoon of the melted white chocolate on the wax paper. Place a single, yellow M&M, blank side up, in the middle of the chocolate. Place the pretzel sticks on the side. Place in the fridge for 5 minutes or leave at room temperature until chocolate has hardened. Remove candies from wax paper using a knife or an icing spreader.



  1. How cute are those?! I love it! Saw your post on The Grackle about the coral honeysuckle vine. I have one...it gets maybe 3-4 hours of afternoon sun. It's slow to come out in the spring but will fill out and bloom eventually. It doesn't bloom vigorously but it blooms and then stays green through the growing season. Thought you might find this interesting. :)

    1. Cat - Thank you so much for the info about the coral honeysuckle vine. I have not given up finding a place for it in my garden. I so appreciate your comment:)
