Candy-Coated Dragonflies

Makes 8 dragonflies

 

Dragonflies 1 pound vanilla candy coating
     or vanilla almond bark
     (use 8 to 10 squares)
Food coloring, optional
8 (8-inch) pretzel rods
16 large classic-shaped pretzel twists
Assorted decorating sugars or sprinkles

Melt candy coating according to package directions. Remove from heat and pour into 2 or 3 small bowls. You may add 2 to 4 drops of food coloring to each bowl. Stir to blend color.

Place pretzel rods on foil-lined cookie sheet sprayed with nonstick cooking spray (about 3 inches apart from each other). These are the dragonflies' long bodies. Carefully spoon the warm melted candy coating over each pretzel rod to cover completely.

Now dip each pretzel twist in the candy coating and place one on each side of the upper half of the pretzel rod. The pretzel twists should actually rest on top of the pretzel rod and just barely touch one another. This forms the dragonfly's wings.

Sprinkle each dragonfly pretzel with colored sugars or sprinkles. Place cookie sheet in freezer for 5 to 10 minutes to allow candy coating to harden on pretzels. Remove from freezer and carefully take each dragonfly off cookie sheet to serve.

Don't let them fly away before you have a chance to take a bite!
