"This is a unique method for decorating Pretzel Rods in the Turtle Flavored method. The recipe yields 15 servings with 2 equaling a single serving (30 are in a complete set for the recipe). They are real mind challenges, in creating the final treat. Try not to flatten when laying upon a foil lined cookie sheet. Your guests will be enchanted by the tasting finish you have installed upon each one!"

"Made this for a church coffee hour for the kids...adults enjoyed just as much--it was a huge hit. I used dark melting chocolate and it took at least another cup of pecans."
