Introduction: Jelly Injected Peanut Butter Pretzel Nuggets
Very simple. Very delicious. Slightly time consuming.
I know what you're thinking. "Why not just spoon some jelly on top of the pretzel nuggets and call it a day?" WRONG. That is messy... and does not require a 24 guage syringe found in an alley in NYC(kidding)... it was found in Chicago.
All jokes aside, you will only need to purchase three items to complete this simple task.
Grape Jelly(I like strawberry better but the seeds kept on getting jammed in the syringe)... if need be buy a syringe with a lower gauge number): $4
24(if they have a lower gauge get that)Gauge Syringe: Found at CVS (along with every other item listed here).** They may ask you why you're purchasing a syringe at ten o'clock on a Thursday night, in which you should reply "I don't even know what year it is man" this should give them a clear indication of what you are probably going to use the syringe for.: $.33
Peanut Butter Pretzel Nuggets can be found in the candy aisle of any CVS: $3-4.
**You should also have a bowl, spoon, and paper towels sitting around.
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Prep the Jelly
Spoon about 8 table spoons of jelly into a bowl and mash it up.
Microwave it for twenty seconds.(almost to the point of boiling).
Take the syringe and suck the jelly up... fill it up.
Turn the syringe upside down and flick the bubbles out... the nuggets respond the same way as humans do when bubbles are injected into their blood stream.
** For thicker jelly you can just take the syringe apart and put the jelly in through the back.
Step 2: Inject the Nuggets
Take the Syringe and plunge it into the large surface of the nugget. Setup an assembly line for faster filling.
Allow for up to 20cc's of jelly to release... or at least until you see jelly seeping through the sides of the nugget.
Pull the syringe out... and presto, you have ready to go miniature peanut butter and jelly sandwiches
