Aren't these little chickies cute?
All you need is:
18 mini pretzels
1 cup melting chips (white or yellow)
18 mini chocolate chips
a couple of soft orange candies (jujubes, wine gums)
1/4 cup shredded or flaked coconut
2-3 drops yellow food colouring
Start by colouring your coconut. Put it in a small plastic bag, add the yellow food colouring and shake.
Once it's coloured to your liking spread the coconut out on a paper towel to dry.
Now take your pretzels and put them on a parchment lined tray. Melt the white or yellow chips and set aside while you cut the orange candies into little beak-shaped pieces.
Put the melted chips into a ziplok bag and snip a corner. Use this to fill the pretzels.
Add the coconut, the orange little beak and a chocolate chip eye and presto! you've got fluffy little chickies!
I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!
