Green Eggs and Ham

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!  In honor of his birthday I am making green eggs and ham for you.  It's a little different from what you might think.
The first thing you want to do is separate the M&M's.  My bag seemed to have more blue than green ones.
Now there are several ways you could do this but this is how I made mine.  I laid out some wax paper.  I put the pairs of pretzels down and put an M&M next to it so I would know how many to make.
I cut off some white bark.  You can use the candy melts but I could not find the white ones so I had to go with the bark.  I just broke off what I thought I might use.
I chopped it up and put in a microwaveable bowl.  Heat in 30 second intervals until it is melted.  You do not want to overheat or burn the chocolate.  You can use white chocolate chips but you will need to add some shortening to it but I don't know the ratio.
It's all melted.
I used a glass to hold my zip lock bag.  You can use the pastry bags but a sandwich bag works just as well and I am sure you have those in your pantry.
Pour the chocolate in it.
Twist it closed and cut the tip.
Then squeeze some chocolate on the pretzels and press the M&M into the chocolate.
Look at all the green eggs and ham.  In this case the ham is "bacon".
A close up.

I tried to make the white chocolate green and the green coloring did something to the chocolate and made it thick and the texture of playdough.
I tried them anyway with the yellow M&M's.  The white was much easier to deal with.
