Easy Vanilla Wafer Construction Trucks!

Hey All!

I feel like it’s been an eternity since I’ve posted, since I usually post daily, but it’s been an insane few weeks with dealing with putting out a lot of fires for campaigns and the baby furniture coming and trying to get it all done. It’s felt like a truck has plowed through me and I’m beyond exhausted and stressed out! This is the cost of running your own business with out any help folks. Since trucks are on the mind, I wanted to take it back and make it a positive by creating something cute and truck inspired like these Easy Vanilla Wafer Construction Trucks! It’s funny how just taking a break to be creative can put your whole world back into perspective. These little DIY yummy trucks did some heavy lifting this week.

Check out how to make them! They may help get you back to zen too!

  • 1 pkg. Vanilla Wafer Cookies
  • 1 box Junior Mints
  • 1 Wilton Candy Melt Drizzle Pouch
  • Blue Jolly Ranchers
  • Pretzel Sticks
  • Edible Candy Rocks
  • Wilton Round Ball Sprinkles
  • Wilton Dab-N-Hold Edible Adhesive

First you cut some wafers in half and cut a few in thirds, and set aside. You then unwrap a few jolly ranchers and lay on parchment paper and microwave for about a minute or until the candy is soft enough to flatten and cut. Then cut out tiny square windows and a rectangle windshield. You may have to reheat the candy a few times as it does start to harden quickly.

When you are ready to start assembly, pop the candy melt pouch in the microwave and heat according to package directions. Note: this will have to be reheated a few times during the truck assembly process as the chocolate starts to harden in the pouch.

Using the candy pouch, attach the half wafer to one end of the whole wafer. Now attach the one third wafer to the half wafer so you create the hood of the truck.

Next attach the Junior Mint wheels to the whole wafer and the ball sprinkles on the front to make the headlights using your candy melt pouch.

Using the dab-n-hold, attach the jolly rancher windshield and windows.

Lastly, squeeze candy melt all over the bed of the truck and stick the pretzel logs or the candy rocks on each one.

That’s it! You’re now ready to get these little trucks trucking right into your belly! You can store them in an airtight container or have fun playing and eating them.

I hope you enjoy these cute and easy to make tasty trucks as much as I do!

Fingers crossed next week I won’t feel like I need a little tasty truck!
