Supplies needed for your Ladybug Pretzels

Making your ladybug pretzels

Begin by cutting your chocolate candy melts in half. This can be done just using any sharp knife or you can heat a knife under hot water and get yourself a clean slice. It won't really matter because they're going to get melted but for someone with OCD, like myself, that'll do the trick.

You're then going to place your pretzels on your lined baking sheet and then place two red candy melts on the back and then the halved chocolate melt on the front.

Place into the oven at 200F and bake for around 2-3 minutes until they are just melted.

Remove them from the oven and then place your candy eyes on the brown candy melt then add your mini chocolate chips on the back of the pretzel to create the ladybug spots.

Place in your refrigerator to have it cool for around 10 minutes until they are set. Place into a cute container or even those strawberry baskets would be adorable for these Ladybug Pretzels.
