Serves:

Method:
No-Cook or Other

Ingredients

FOR THE EGGS:

3 Tbsp
white chocolate chips
12
yellow m&ms

FOR THE FAKIN':

1
square caramel
1
tootsie roll midgee

Step-By-Step

1For the eggs: Melt the white chocolate chips according to the package directions. Transfer the melted chocolate to a ziplock bag and snip off a corner.
2Squeeze nickel-size portions of the chocolate onto a sheet of waxed paper, then gently press a yellow M&M, letter side down, into the center of each. Let the candies cool.
3For the fakin': Remove the wrapping from a square caramel and a Tootsie Roll Midgee. Microwave the candies for 4 seconds to make them soft. Use your thumb and forefinger to slightly flatten each candy piece, then press them together.
4Halve the candy, then stack and press the pieces into alternating layers.
5Slice a 1/4-inch-wide piece from the stack. Pinch and stretch the piece lengthwise into a flat bacon strip, then cut it in half. Add ripples to each half by gently bending the edges
