Lumpy Angry Undersized Owl

Haunted Hooting Owl PretzelsI don’t know what this owl pretzel treat from Better Homes and Gardens is so ticked off about, staring at us with his angry eyebrows. After all, *we’re* the ones being told this is a snack that even kids can make, despite vague instructions like “Use black licorice twists as eyebrows.”

Sure, it SOUNDS easy, but when you think about it, what does that really mean? “Here kids, balance these chunks of licorice on the cookie eyeballs… somehow.” Never mind the fact that I’m pretty sure owls don’t even have eyebrows.

CraftFail reader Kate found out the hard way that simple instructions don’t necessarily mean a project is simple. First of all, she noticed the recipe didn’t specify what size the pretzels should be; she used the biggest ones she could find, but they still ended up being too small. Then, try as she might, she just couldn’t get the candy to melt smoothly like in the inspiration photo.

Oh well, hoo hoo cares? They’re still candy-coated deliciousness with chocolate cookies, right?

    You can buy large pretzels already covered in chocolate. That’s what I would do instead of trying to get mine dipped and perfectly smooth.
