Look, I love Taquitos, okay. They’re totally yum, they take about a minute to heat up in the microwave, and they have always been one of my favorite after school snacks. So, naturally, I decided to turn them into pencils for an awesome back to school treat!
These taquito pencils were so much fun to make as a quick snack for the kids. I couldn’t believe how fast they made them. And, I love that older kids can even make them by themselves! The girls loved that, too because they felt super important making a recipe that was so totally adorable. I love giving them that chance at independence!
What You Need To Make Taquito Pencils:
How To Make Taquito Pencils:
- Cook a few Taquitos in the microwave on high for about a minute. We wrapped ours in a paper towel, and they came out perfect.
- While your taquitos are cooling, cut a raisin into fourths. This is just for the little tip of the pencil. You could skip this part if you want, but I think it really makes the pencil super cute!
- Pick out Bugles that are pretty straight and have a big opening at the end. We had a lot of fun picking out the perfect ones!
- Stick the Taquitos down into the Bugles.
