I am a super Syfy nerd.  I was 19 when the first Star Wars movie came out. It was HUGE!  All the creatures and new space vehicles visually I was in heaven.  I have ALL 6 DVD’s and am anxiously awaiting the NEW movie!  I was so excited when I heard that my granddaughter (who is 5) was already a fan and wants to see the movie as badly as I do.  Now these movies can be passed down to the new generation of movie goers.

Here is what you will need to create these fun and yummy pretzels.

Supplies

pretzel rods

white melting candy (I used Wilton candy melts)

black melted candy ( I used Wilton candy melts)

assorted colors of sugar sprinkles

Optional: shortening

Directions

Line a cookie sheet with parchment or wax paper (I prefer parchment).

Add black candy to a medium microwave safe bowl along with some shortening (about 1 tablespoon).  Heat until melted in 30 second intervals, stir until creamy.  Once candy is ready, dip one third of the pretzel into the melted candy.  Place on prepared cookie sheet.  Once all the pretzel ends have been dipped; place the cookie sheet in the refrigerator to harden (about 10 minutes).  Pour the remaining melted black candy either in a squeeze bottle or a zip to bag and set aside.

While the pretzel ends are hardening prepare the white candy and sugar sprinkles.  NOTE:  Only work with one color of sprinkles at a time.  Prepare the white candy the same way as you did the black candy.  When the black candy has hardened; dip the remaining pretzel in the white candy making sure to touch the black.  TIP:  I wrapped the black candy with wax paper to protect it from melting.

Add colorful sugar to the white portion of the pretzel and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or wax paper.

Once all the pretzel have been dipped and coated set aside to harden (about 15 minutes).  By this time the black candy should have thickened up.  Drizzle some of the thickened black candy over the handle portion of the pretzel.
