I saw these on pinterest and
just had to make them for our boss, Ann. Ann took a long trip out of the country and I made them for all of us to eat on her first day back.
I will tell you that they were a little more time consuming that I anticipated (but she is worth it - and no, she does not read my blog!!) I started with a bag of pretzels and a bag of red candy melts and a bag of dark cocoa candy melts.
Melt the red candy first and dip 2/3 of each pretzel and allow to dry (on wax paper). Then melt the dark cocoa ones and dip the top third and allow to dry. Then mix a little powdered sugar and a little milk together to form the icing for the eyes. I put this mixture in a baggie and snipped a hole in the corner and "piped" on the eyes. Some of the eyes were perfect . . .others not so perfect. By the time that I started on the eyes, I was pretty tired!!
The lady bug pretzels were actually tasty, too - not just cute!! I think they were a hit -- they were all eaten in a pretty short amount of time!!
