Butterfly Pretzels

I came up with a fun little candy butterfly for my daughter's butterfly birthday party.  The taste as good as they look and super easy to make for your favorite little butterflies.


Thin stick pretzels
Mini twist pretzels
white baking chocolate
bar of baking milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips
colorful sprinkles


Melt white chocolate or almond bark until smooth.  Dip mini twist pretzels in chocolate and set on waxed or parchment paper.  

Sprinkle immediately with colored sprinkles or decorative sugars.  Let dry.

Melt milk or semi-sweet chocolate.  Dip stick pretzels in chocolate to coat about 2/3 of the stick.  Then place the coated pretzel sticks between two coated mini twist pretzels that are positioned like wings.

Layout the butterflies on waxed paper again until the milk/semi-sweet chocolate dries.

For the finishing touch, dab a little chocolate on the back of an M&M.

Place the M&M at the top of the stick pretzel to make the butterfly's head.

Let all of the chocolate completely dry before very carefully storing in an airtight container.  I've found that keeping the "butterflies" cool like in a fridge helps a little bit.
