Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    Line small platter with cooking parchment paper. Cut pretzel rods in half with serrated knife. Unroll and remove paper from Fruit Roll-Ups fruit flavored snacks. Cut each into four 1 1/2-inch wide strips, using various colors.
  • 2
    Wrap strip around each pretzel rod half, covering entire pretzel, and pressing gently to attach. Form one end of strip around pretzel to make the crayon tip.
  • 3
    Cut thin strips about 2 inches long and 1/4 inch wide, using another color Fruit Roll-Ups fruit flavored snack. Wrap strip around pretzel rod, near the ends, using photo as a guide. Place completed crayons on parchment paper.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Make up a few of each color to create your own "box" of crayons. This would also make a fun sorting activity, with an edible treat at the end!
  • tip 2
    Want to make mini crayons? Instead of pretzel rods, use pretzel sticks, and adjust proportions of Fruit Roll-Ups fruit flavored snacks.
