I’m taking my daughter to a “Spring Tea” party hosted by one of her classmates. I wanted to bring a cute treat to fit the theme that a bunch of 4 year old’s would love. I saw this pin for these duck pretzels. It looked like a cute and simple project and I had most of the ingredients already. They turned out really cute!
What You’ll Need
1.) Nonstick Mat – my Silpat worked great
2.) Twist Pretzels
3.) Candy Coating – I used white Wilton candy coats and used my oil based Wilton food coloring to color it yellow.
5.) Tick Tacs
6.) Something for the eyes – black icing OR edible marker OR black nonparelis
1.) Place pretzels out on a nonstick mat.
2.) Melt candy coating according to package directions.
3.) Color the candy coating (if you use white candy). If you purchase yellow candy coats, you can save yourself a step.
4.) Spoon candy coating inside pretzels.
5.) Before the candy sets, place tick tacs where the beak will go.
6.) Let ducks set for 15-20 minutes.
7.) Use marker to dot an eye on the duck. I tried my Wilton FoodWriter, but it didn’t work. I ended up using the marker to make indentation where the eyes should be and piped in some black icing to make the eyes. I decided I didn’t like that, so I used green sprinkles. If I make these again, I will use some larger black ball nonparelis.
8.) Eat and enjoy!

Substitutions: I used black icing AND green sprinkles for the eyes instead of an edible marker. Also, I used tic tacs instead of orange coated sunflower seeds. I couldn’t find the sunflower seeds at the store.
Time: 30 minutes
NOTE: One bag of Wilton Candy Melts made 50 duck pretzels.
