Pretzel Chicks!

Need a last minute easy Easter snack for your babes?

Look no further! These are the perfect size for little hands and were so simple to make!!



Per usual I signed up to bring snack to my son’s school for their “Easter Party”. I wanted something that was cute but most importantly EASY!  These fit the bill! They were so simple to make and only took me about 15 minutes from start to finish!!

To make Pretzel Chicks (not to be confused with Hot Chicks) you will need the following:


Small pretzels, Mini Chocolate Chops, 2 Orange starbursts, and Yellow baking chocolate (found at Michaels)

Make sure to line a cookie sheet with wax paper so the chocolate comes off easily and have all your supplies ready to before melting your chocolate.


To make the beaks simply cut each starburst into 3 rectangles, cut those in half, and finally cut each on a diagonal.  Each starburst will give you 12 beaks.


Melt your chocolate in the microwave according to the package directions and then transfer to a plastic bag when it is melted.  To easily do this line a drinking glass with your bag for a mess free transfer!  Cut a small hole in the corner of your bag so you can easily fill each pretzel.


Use the chocolate to fill in each pretzel.  It might be a little uneven but you can use the back of a spoon to smooth out.  Immediately put an eye and a beak on the wet chocolate and place the entire tray in the fridge for them to set.


Enjoy!! How cute do these look in a little Easter basket?  What kinds of Easter treats are you making? I’d love to see!
