You do not like green eggs and ham? You do not like them, Sam I am?
Well, pretty sure you haven’t tried THIS version of Green Eggs and Ham
! To celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday, we have given the classic a sweet twist this year.
To the surprise of all your friends and family, the green “eggs” turn out to be delicious green cupcakes cooked inside of (real) eggshells. And then the “ham” is none other than a sweet Fruit Roll-Up. You can even enjoy them in a boat, with a goat, in the rain, on a train, with a fox, in a box, or ANYWHERE you’d like!
Just be sure to wish Dr. Seuss a happy birthday as we give thanks for the amazing books and great reading times he has inspired for generations.
Here’s the how to!
First, we get to hollow out the eggs. Poke a hole in the top of each egg.
Widen the holes to about the shape of a dime. Then rinse them out, and soak them in saltwater for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare a white cake mix, turned green with food coloring. Pipe it into each egg until it is about half full. Place the eggs in a baking tin and use aluminum foil to secure the eggs, so that they stand upright. Then bake for about 20-25 minutes at 350 until the cake is cooked through.
Let them cool, then serve them and let your guests enjoy the “sweet” surprise when they crack open their eggs!
