(Gummy) Worms On A Stick!

Gummy Worms On A Stick!
When my hubby and I were on Mackinac Island
last week, I saw the sweetest little treat in Sanders candy shop! 
Pretzel rods, dipped in chocolate, covered with cookie crumbs and a smiling gummy worm perched on top! 
Adorable..yes, I think worms are cute..the candy ones anyway. ;o)
I looked everywhere to find the worms they used. 
I could not find them, so I went with these. Still cute.
The candy store sold the sticks for $2.49 each...
but you can make them "dirt cheap". (wink,wink)
I also made some tiny ones using pretzel sticks and the smaller gummy worms.
You will need: Pretzel rods~Melted Chocolate~
Chocolate Cookies(crushed for the dirt)~
Gummy Worms

I used these Oreo type cookies.
I just scraped off the filling, and then crushed them. 
If you can find the chocolate wafer cookies, that would be a little easier!
 "Mount Crumbmore"
 Pretzel Rods ready for dipping...
 Sprinkle cookies crumbs onto the chocolate, place on wax paper. Let sit till chocolate sets!

 Eeww & yum-o! Gummies!
Gently tap the pretzel, shaking off the extra crumbs to make sure the gummy worm will stick!
Spread a little of the melted chocolate to the underside of the worm and place on the pretzel.
I thought it would be cute to make little dirt piles for the smaller worms to rest on.
Spoon a little puddle of the melted chocolate on wax paper. Place a few pretzel sticks in the chocolate and sprinkle with the cookie crumbs. Let sit, then add the gummy worms.
Don't get all "wormy" on me! Just make up a quick little batch of these and you'll feel better!
Happy and Fun Creating

  1. Thought you might enjoy this recipe!

  2. Where did you get the gummy worms from please?

    1. Hi Lynda! Honestly, it's been a while since I made these so I'm thinking I bought them at Wal-mart. I try to use candies that are pretty easy to find. That said, it could also have been Target or even Walgreens. Happy creating! :o)
