How To Make Easy Chocolate Pretzel Reindeer Treats
1 – First of all melt the chocolate in a bowl over warm water or as per the instructions on the packet.
2 – Next take 2 of the thicker twisted pretzels and dip about two thirds of their length into the melted chocolate.
3 – To make The Rudolfs red nose put a pair of chocolate pretzels on the baking parchment in a “V” shape making the sure the chocolate ends touch. Quickly, before the chocolate sets, put a cherry ball candy on the join of each “V”.
4 – Of course your reindeer treats needs eyes, so fully coat a mini pretzel stick with chocolate and lay it across the “V” on the line where the last of the chocolate ends and the plain pretzel begins. (If your thin pretzels are too long snap off the excess.) Quickly, before the chocolate sets, put on 2 edible eyes.
