Baby. Chick. Chocolates.Ever since last year at Eliana's 3rd birthday party when I made the Ladybug M&Ms I've been wanting to make something else out of M&Ms. I am in love with all things mini. And cute. And chocolate. All three together = Perfection.
Then came Eliana's birthday this year. We filled up a jar with M&Ms in the colors of the rainbow to add to the table decorations. At the end of the party as we were cleaning up I stared at the jar and thought to myself, what can I do with all those M&Ms? No one ate them! I figured we could just eat them, but I had something cuter in mind.
To make these baby chick M&Ms you'll need yellow M&Ms (or any yellow candy), and edible food color markers (black and orange). I drew the chicks many different ways, but all of them have hair (orange "W"), eyes (black circles) and a beak (orange triangle). Some have legs, some have wings.
Here are some tips:
1. Grab a bunch of yellow M&Ms (or Sixlets).
2. Resist the urge to eat them immediately.
3. Commence drawing!
4. Admire your artwork.
5. Now eat! (don't they taste so much better than regular M&Ms? hehe)
These Baby Chick Chocolates would be a cute addition to a fun lunch too!
**please note that M&Ms are not completely peanut free or nut free, even the plain chocolate ones. They contain warnings on the label because they may contain peanuts due to cross contamination and shared equipment lines. As always with warnings, you are at your own risk. Even though Eliana's allergy isn't severe we now only buy Sixlets (which are peanut/nut free) instead now after learning of her allergy. These Baby Chick Chocolates could be made with Sixlets too!**
