  • Pretzel Rods
  • Reese’s Pieces orange and yellows, cut in half
  • Chocolate Chips or candy melts
  • Candy corn assorted
  • Candy Pearls
  • Chocolate Rice Cereal


  • Break Pretzel Rods in half.
  • Melt Chocolate in microwave, 30 seconds and stir, 15 second increments stirring after each until melted and smooth, let sit at least 5 minutes to set up just a little to make it easier to work with.
  • On a piece of wax paper lay out 3 candy corns in a fan shape with the pointy side in.
  • Using a spoon cover a Pretzel Rod with Chocolate. Leave a little extra on the top back part to stick to the candy corn.
  • Lay the Chocolate covered pretzel over the Candy Corn so they stick out the tops.
  • Apply 2 Pearls for eyes at the top end by the Candy Corn. You may need to hold them for a few seconds so they set.
  • Using a toothpick, dab it in the Chocolate and gently apply a dot to each pearl.
  • Place a half piece of a Reese’s pieces under the Pearls for the beak.
  • Coat with cereal for the feathers.
  • Let cool and set at least 30 minutes. Gently remove from wax paper and store in airtight container in cool place.
