Well, the first week of school is coming to a close. The chaos has started to subside and Matthew is settling into his new class. Matthew and I decided to make a little treat for his friends at school and made these crayon pretzels.
All you need to do is take a bag of pretzel sticks (the nice thick ones) and dip each end into coloured chocolate. Place on wax paper to dry and then cover in coordinating paper. I got the download off the internet from here. Make sure you just use the cheap, thin coloured paper rather than good cardstock as it rolls up much easier! I just used tape to secure the paper so I didn’t get glue in the food. 😉
My original plan was to do a couple of different colours but things never seem to go as planned. I bought some red chocolate melts but was going to use some white chocolate chips and food colouring for the other colours. Turns out the chocolate melts were MUCH smoother and worked much better than the chocolate chips so I ended up just sticking with red. I then just packaged them up in a plastic pencil box and off to school they went!
Have a great weekend!
