Lady Bug Party Pretzels: Cute and easy chocolate lady bug pretzels. Easy for kids to make and perfect for parties!
Normally I am terrified of bugs. I am totally that person that screams when they see a spider outside. I’ve also been known to wake up my housemates at 11 PM if there’s one inside! WHAT?! You want me to kill it?
However, even if you’re bug phobic like me you won’t be able to resist these little cuties. They come together in just a few minutes using common baking staples.
If you don’t want to make a craft store run you could surely use more mini chocolate chips instead of the candy pearls.
