How to Make Fried Egg Candy

Items you need:

I did not specify amounts for this recipe, as you can pretty much make how many you desire.  It doesn't take a lot of white chocolate to make each candy.

~white chocolate melting wafers (check the cake decorating section of your larger stores)
~stick pretzels
~yellow chocolate pieces, such as from M&M candy
~wax paper
~baking sheets (or use your tabletop)

1. Layer baking sheets (or table top surface) with waxed paper.  

2. For each fried egg, you will need two pretzel sticks.  Place two pretzels side by side, leaving a space in between each candy (pretzels will spread apart a bit when chocolate is added next).

3. Melt white chocolate over double boiler or in a microwave.  Using a spoon, carefully drop a small amount over the center top of each set of pretzels.  I did not measure.  Spoon on enough chocolate to look like eggs.  Before this chocolate hardens, press one yellow (or two for a double yolk) chocolate candy piece into the center of the white chocolate.

4. Allow the candy to cool.   Store in an air tight container.

These are great for gifting any time of the year.  We love to make them at Christmas time, and have been making them for years now.  They are fun for cookie exchanges and bake sales too.
