Ziggy the Zebra

This week's Family Friday is a tasty treat for all ages. After reading Ziggy the Zebra, you will make your very own tasty zebra friends. Read our step-by-step guide on how to make this desert at home. Have fun!

What you need:

  • 2 bowls
  • Microwave
  • Milk chocolate chips
  • White chocolate chips
  • Pretzels/Strawberries/Bananas

Step 1

Open up your Footsteps2Brilliance App, and go to Level 2 (Yellow). In your library, find the book Ziggy the Zebra in the Alphabet Animals series. Read the book with your child. Be sure to touch the illustrations to see the pictures come alive!

Step 2

Microwave the white chocolate chips for 30 seconds. Stir the chocolate until it is melted.

If it needs more time, place it in the microwave for an extra 15 seconds. Chocolate burns very quickly, so do not leave it in for too long!

Step 3

Cover your pretzel or fruit in the white chocolate.

Repeat step 2. Drizzle the milk chocolate over the pretzel or fruit to make the zebra pattern.

You can change which chocolate is the stripe and which is the body. Enjoy!
