My mom and I saw this cute idea at a craft show about a month ago--
but didn't make them until this past week.
I'm sure many of you know, but it was just Dr. Suess's birthday,
and my mom being a kindergarten teacher goes all out for this.
This year she read her class "The Lorax" and made fun crafts to go along
with the book. She also made "truffela trees" for the kids to eat.
The trees were simple, pretzel sticks, mini marshmallows,
melted chocolate and sprinkles!
They were so easy to make. First, melt the chocolate, we chose white, in a pan or bowl placed over boiling water. Once it starts to melt, stir so it becomes nice and smooth.
Place the pretzel rod in the marshmallow and carefully dip into the chocolate.
Immediately dip in your choice of sprinkles.
Let them dry on wax paper--I also sprayed some cooking spray, just incase!
My mom made brownies with green icing and put the little "truffela trees" all across the top. It looked like a colorful forest & her kids loved them!
I plan on trying these again soon--maybe St. Patty's day?
