Chocolate covered pretzles with a halloween twist
1. Cut off the tops of pretzel rods and set aside.
2. Melt 1 cup white-chocolate chips, 1 Tbs shortening and a few drops of green food coloring; stir until smooth.
3. Dip the cut end of the pretzels into the chocolate, covering the top 2 inches. Place on wax paper and sprinkle the sides of each with coconut flakes to form hair.
4. Top each with a Hershey's Kiss and refrigerate until the chocolate has hardened. Draw on eyes, nose and mouth with black decorating icing; finish by covering the Kiss, too.
