Turkey Pretzel Bites Recipe
Milk Duds or Rolos
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or baking mat. Place the pretzel twists on parchment paper, salted side down. Make sure all the pretzels are facing the same direction for easy decoration.
The front of the turkey is the side of the pretzel which has both rounded ends. Place a Rolo or Milk Dud in the center of each pretzel. Either it will work, it just takes a little longer for the Milk Duds to soften in the oven.
Place the baking sheet in the oven. Cook the pretzels with Rolos for 1 minute or the pretzels with Milk Duds for 3 minutes. Remove from the oven.
Now is the time to decorate the turkeys. For each softened Rolo or Milk Dud, add two candy eyes for the eyes and a piece of Reese (turned lengthwise) for the nose. Place three candy beans along the back for the tail.
