Yield: 28 servings

About 28 mini pretzels

¾ cup white chocolate chips

½ teaspoon shortening or coconut oil

Orange food coloring, or 4 drops of red food coloring and 2 drops of yellow

28 green M&Ms

1. Melt white chocolate chips and shortening or coconut oil together in a double boiler or a microwave (high power for 1 minute, let it sit for 1 minute, stir gently and then microwave for 15 more seconds if necessary).

2. Stir in food coloring.

3. Use a fork to dip each pretzel into the bowl of chocolate. Tap gently on the side of the bowl to release excess chocolate and place on a piece of waxed paper. Stand a green M&M on its side in the indentation to resemble a stem. Let cool until solid. Store in an airtight container.
