Eat Crayons!! Edible Crayons Recipe

Are you always getting after your kids for eating crayons? lol! Here is some crayons that they CAN eat =D How fun is this? It would be such a COOL idea to make a crayon box from your Cricut machine and put these little treats inside and print out  "You Color my World" saying on the front and then place in their lunch box. What a great preschool or  "back to school treat". Have fun!  I found a crayon box template here. I used the 16 count crayon box and it fit four pretzels perfectly. Then I just did some typing in text boxes and adhered them to the front of the box 

Edible Crayons
*Pretzel Rods
*Candy Melts 
(or white chocolate bark/chocolate chips with a little of your favorite food coloring added)*Paper Labels (make them yourself or download mine here. Print on colored paper of your choice)
-Break or cut pretzel rods in half.
-Melt candy melts or chocoalte chips in microwave on medium heat for 1 minute. Stir and continue cooking at 15 second intervals until melted. Stir well. Add a few drops food coloring if desired.
-Dip ends of pretzels in melted candy.

-Place on wax paper or aluminum foil to dry.
-When dry, wrap with crayon label and secure with tape

You can buy Candy Melts in white or brown at Wal-Mart. They're in the craft section in the wedding supplies. Wal-Mart also had white chocolate bark in the baking aisle. For colored Candy Melts, check your local cake supply store or you can get them at On, do a search for "compound coating". To color melted white chocolate chips or chocolate bark, oil-based candy food coloring is best. If you have regular food coloring, just make sure the chocolate isn't too hot (just warm) when you add it or it might make it clumpy.
Thanks to www.partiesbyhardie for this idea!
