It’s Dr. Seuss’s Birthday!

Green Eggs and Ham
 
  • Pretzel sticks
  • White Candy melts (can be found at Michael’s or other craft store)
  • Green M&Ms
  1. Place pairs of pretzels onto a cookie sheet.
  2. I’ve done these two ways and I think I prefer the 1st way but do whatever is easier for you: 1)Place one white candy melt on top of each pair pretzel sticks and put cookie sheet in a 350 degree oven for 2-3 minutes. Once out of the oven press M&Ms onto white chocolate.2)Put white chocolate melts in a ziploc bag and microwave for 30 second intervals until melted. Cut the corner of the bag with scissors and pipe chocolate onto pretzel sticks in the size of a nickel. Press M&Ms onto white chocolate. Let the white chocolate harden before removing from parchment paper.

2 quarts lime sherbet*
2 liters Sprite, 7-Up or Ginger Ale
1 (46-ounce) can pineapple juice
Maraschino cherries or frozen strawberries, optional, for a little red color
Pineapple sherbet, optional, to add to top for extra flavor and color (see photo)
Green food coloring if you want more color!

DIRECTIONS:

In a large punch bowl, add 2 quarts of lime sherbet.  Pour the Sprite/7-Up/Ginger Ale over the top and then add pineapple juice.  Add in cherries or strawberries, if using.  I topped mine off with some pineapple sherbet for extra pineapple flavor and color contrast!

*If you can’t find lime sherbet, substitute rainbow sherbet or lemon sherbet and add some green food coloring until you reach the green color you desire.  You can also get creative and find other ways to make it green – green Hawaiian punch…green apple soda, green apple Crystal Light, etc.  Enjoy!
