  • green icing color

  3. Place the pretzel on a wire cooling rack. Sprinkle each pretzel with orange sprinkles. NOTE: Only do a few pretzels at a time, otherwise the chocolate will harden and the sprinkles won't stick.
  4. Press a mini chocolate chip into the chocolate at the top of each pretzel, this will be the pumpkin stem. If the chocolate has hardened too much, dip the bottom of the mini chip into the Candy Melts and then adhere it to the pretzel.
  5. Once the chocolate has hardened remove them from the wire rack. Using tip #67, pipe a leaf onto each pumpkin at the base of the stem.
