  • 24 Mini Pretzels
  • 1 cup of Yellow Candy Melting Chips
  • 24 Mini Chocolate Chips
  • 2 Orange Starbursts


  • Cut one Starburst into 3 rectangular strips (1/4" x 3/4")
  • Cut each of those in half, creating 6 - 1/4" x 3/8" rectangles.
  • Now cut each of those diagonally creating 12 triangles for beaks.
  • Repeat with other Starburst, giving you 24 beaks.
  • Lay the pretzels out on a wax paper lined cookie sheet.
  • Heat the Yellow Candy Chips by microwaving for 30 seconds stirring and repeating until melted. Allow to cool for 2-3 minutes.
  • Transfer the chocolate to the corner of a zippered bag and clip a tiny piece off of the corner to pipe.
  • Pipe the candy over the inside of the pretzel to form the shape of a chick. Smooth with finger if necessary.
  • Place one mini chocolate chip for the eye and the Starburst triangles for beaks.
  • Place the cookie sheet in the refrigerator for 20 minutes to allow candy to set.
