It is Teacher Appreciation Week around here and I am sharing my candy covered pretzel pencils today. A great idea for a small token of your appreciation. The teacher will love this delicious and unique gift idea. If you have missed any of the fun this week, be sure to check out the round ups from day 1, day 2, day 3, and day 4. Also, come back each afternoon as I round up even more great Teacher Appreciation ideas from our blog partners. Want a chance to be featured? Link up your quick Teacher Appreciation crafts to our linky party today. Now lets learn how to make those candy covered pretzel pencils.
Melt some white candy coating (or almond bark) in the microwave according to the package directions. Add a drop in between each Nutter Butter cookie.
Sandwich cookies with skewer in between. Be sure to leave a bit of the pointy tip out of the top for his hat. Coat the entire stack of Nutter Butters (front and back) with the white candy coating.
While still wet, add mini chocolate chip eyes, an orange sprinkle nose, and a fruit roll up scarf. Dip a Hershey’s kiss in the white candy coating and push into the skewer at the top for a hat.
Allow to dry and these are ready to serve. These quick and easy holiday treats are perfect for classroom projects or a rainy day. Be sure to make some of these 10 minute snowmen treats with your kids.
