  • Chocolate Rice Cereal
  1. Break Pretzel Rods in half.
  2. 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.
  3. On a piece of wax paper lay out 3 candy corns in a fan shape with the pointy side in.
  4. Using a spoon cover a Pretzel Rod with Chocolate. Leave a little extra on the top back part to stick to the candy corn.
  5. Lay the Chocolate covered pretzel over the Candy Corn so they stick out the tops.
  6. 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.
  7. Using a toothpick, dab it in the Chocolate and gently apply a dot to each pearl.
  8. Place a half piece of a Reese’s pieces under the Pearls for the beak.
  9. Coat with cereal for the feathers.
  10. Let cool and set at least 30 minutes. Gently remove from wax paper and store in airtight container in cool place.
