Pretzel Butterflies

 May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun
And find your shoulder to light on,
To bring you luck, happiness and riches
Today, tomorrow and beyond.
~Irish Blessing


Chocolate Pretzle Butterflies

Pretzle Rods
Tiny Twist Pretzles
White Almond Bark
Colored Sugar
Sixlets

1.  Melt Almond Bark according to package.
2.  Lightly dip one end of rod into melted bark.  Lay onto wax paper. 
3.  Dip 2 tiny pretzels into bark and attach to sides of rod.  I like to prop mine up to look like they are flying, but you can lay them flat.

4.  Once the wings have set re-dip into the melted bark.

5.  Sprinkle with colored sugar.



6.  Attach eyes (Sixlets) with melted bark.


Look I caught 2 butterflies!



These cute Butterflies will make special Easter goodies.
Wrap in a cellophane bag and tie with cute spring ribbon.
