Pretzel Butterflies

These Pretzel Butterflies are fun to make and were a hit with kids and adults at Putti's Butterfly themed 5th birthday Party

To make these Pretzel Butterflies, you will need:
  • small pretzel twists (2 for each butterfly plus extra for antanna 
  • 1/2 cup White Royal Icing in Ziplock cover or piping bag
  • Wax paper and cookie sheet
  • m&m or any round candies
Steps to make:
  1. Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper. 
  2. Pipe a thin line of royal icing on the wax paper. Press To two pretzel twists on the royal icing firmly with single-hole sides of pretzels touching to form butterfly wings. 
  3. Pipe more icing over the pretzels to form the body.
  4. Break remaining pretzels into pieces for antennae. Press  2 pieces into the icing at top of each butterfly between wings.
  5. Pipe icing into each hole in wings and press a m&m into it.
  6. Let stand until set, about 8 hours. I left them over night. If you are using melted candies, it may be set sooner.
  7. Remove from waxed paper and store in tightly covered container.
