How we did it:

Materials List

  1. pretzels
  2. candy wafers - or candy coating
  3. wax paper
  4. pan
  5. black frosting
  6. orange frosting
  1. Line tray with pretzels.  

  2. Fill a microwave-safe container with candy wafers, about halfway.  Melt them according to the package directions. Put them in for 30 seconds at medium heat, then in 15-second increments at low heat. After each increment, mix candy around with a spoon until it had a smooth frosting-like consistency.  

  3. Take spoonfuls of the candy and pour into the pretzels. You can smooth the candy out with the back of the spoon or with a toothpick. Wait 10-15 min for the frosting to harden.  

  4. Decorate! Make eyes and beak with the black and orange frosting.  

  5. Enjoy and share!
