This is funny since we had these last night at our Christmas Eve grazing party.  They were delicious and very cuts plus so easy to make.

They are super cute. I would use them as snacks but they would also as the perfect table decor. My daughter loves to help in the kitchen.

Oh my goodness, these look adorable and SO tasty! DEFINITELY doing this for my nieces and nephews next Christmas, I'm so sad I didn't get the chance this year!



I'm making them now. It's hard to find the round pretzels. The regular ones look cute like little noses and ears. Everyone loves them. <3
