| Crunchy, sweet Calico cat tails provide a perfect ending to a cat-themed Halloween party.|
| || |
|What you need:|
• 1 bag large pretzel rods
• 1 (12-oz.) bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
• 1 bag caramel candies
• 1 to 2 tablespoons water
• 1 cup crushed chocolate cookies
• 1 cup crushed chocolate chip cookies
|Line a cookie sheet with wax paper and spray down with cooking spray. Note: The cooking spray will help prevent the caramel from sticking to the wax paper.|
Melt the caramel candies and 1 to 2 tablespoons water over a medium low heat. Once melted put on a low simmer or the caramel will burn.
Take a spoon and slather the caramel onto the pretzel rod. Leave a part of the end plain so you can hold on to it. Place the caramel rod on the wax paper to cool for a few minutes. You want it to slightly harden.
While the caramel rods are melting melt the semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Once melted you can use a spoon or rubber spatula to slather the melted chocolate on top of the caramel. Place it back on the wax paper to slightly cool for a few minutes.
On a plate take the slightly cooled rod and sprinkle the crushed cookie bits onto the chocolate. You can alternate them to make a calico pattern.
Let harden in the refrigerator, then serve.
