Green Eggs Pretzel Bites – Easy Dr Seuss Snack Idea
Whether you happen to be celebrating Dr. Seuss Week with your students, or you simply want a fun snack idea that ties in with an iconic childhood book, these Green Eggs Pretzel Bites are a super easy Dr Seuss Snack Idea to make!
There is one author whose books are so widely incorporated into school curricula nationwide, he gets an entire week named after him. Dr. Seuss books are favorites for many parents and educators to read to their kids and students and every year during the last week of February many schools celebrate “Dr. Seuss Week.” Dr. Seuss’s birthday is March 2nd, so that explains the timing for this themed week.
Our local elementary schools always celebrate Dr. Seuss Week and they usually tie in some spirit days with things like “crazy hair day,” “pajama day,” etc. Lily always looks forward to this week of school and loves participating in the activities.

Green Eggs Pretzel Bite Supplies
To make these tasty snacks, you will need:
How to Make Green Eggs Pretzel Bites:
1. Preheat oven to 200F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Arrange pretzels in a single layer on parchment paper.
2. Place a candy melt on top of each pretzel, flat side down.
3. Bake pretzels for 5 minutes at 200F. They should be melted but not to the point of dripping through the pretzel holes.
4. Gently press a green M&M into each candy melt. Let sit until the candy hardens. (You can speed this up by placing the tray in the refrigerator.)
5. That’s it! Enjoy them immediately or store them in an airtight container or Ziploc bag for up to a week.
