Recipe: Pretzel Spider Web
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: None
Yield: 6 servings
Serving size: 2 webs
48 mini pretzel rods
2 ounces melting white chocolate
Start by carefully breaking the pretzel rods in half, using 4 for each web.
On a silicone baking mat, or a piece of parchment paper, lay out the webs by placing the pretzel rods in a snowflake shape with the broken ends meeting in the middle.
Melt the chocolate in a small microwave-safe bowl in 15 second intervals until it is melted.
Allow the chocolate to cool so it is safe enough to touch, and then transfer it to a resealable ziplock bag and cut a very narrow tip at the corner.
Pipe the chocolate in the center of the pretzel web to connect the pieces, then drizzle in a circular motion to make the web. Each web will use about 1½ teaspoons of melted chocolate.
Allow to harden, then gently pop them off of the surface with a flat metal spatula.
