Chick on a Stick


They take about 30 mins to set.

To make about 25, you need:

2 large bags of chow mein

1.5 bags baking bark chocolate blocks (milk chocolate) (I used Candyquik because it is easy)

Peeps

1 bag of Robin’s eggs malted milk balls

1 bag of pretzel rods


Melt the chocolate and then pour in some noodles and mix until they are covered, then add some more noodles, and keep mixing, repeat. The chocolate will not cover if you try to dump all the noodles in at once.

Lay the pretzels on wax paper, plop some chocolate covered noodles on in a “nest” and try to flatten out the middle while it is still gooey. If you have a little extra melted chocolate, you can pour that on the nest as extra “glue” to keep it all together. Put the peeps on and the malted milk eggs on while the whole thing is still warm. The egg sticks to the marshmallow on the side of the peep where it was broken away from the other peeps.



I chose blue peeps because what is more realistic than a bluebird sitting in it's nest with eggs?
