I looked and looked to find one of the blogs where I first saw this little treat and I couldn't find one, even though I have seen at least two or three different versions. At any rate, I wanted to make something quick and simple and easy to transport to take to visit my family this easter weekend. Honestly, this is candy making for dummies.
preheat the oven to 350F
candy melting wafers
cadbury mini eggs
coarse sanding sugar
Get small waffle pretzels - I got mine at Bulk Barn. Lay them out on a baking sheet lined with parchment or a silpat. Lay a candy melt in the centre of each pretzel (mine are wilton candy melts like these that I also bought at bulk barn). Put the baking sheet in the oven for 3 minutes. Take the tray out of the oven and lay one cadbury mini easter egg on top of each candy melt. Sprinkle some sanding sugar in a contrasting cover over the tops of each one and let sit until cooled enough to move onto a wire cooling rack and then let them cool completely so that the melting candy is completely set and hard again.
For me, these are a perfect little treat and the only thing that would make them better would be to incorporate some caramel into them somehow. You pop the whole thing in your mouth and you get that salty pretzel with the crunch of the candy coating and then the melt of chocolate all coming together at the same time.
