24 Nov Pistachio and Chocolate Stars
These will be a big hit, a little messy to make but boy they are good.
Make a lot, everyone will love them.
Makes 8 stars
48 thin pretzel sticks
30 oz good quality dark chocolate
1 cup finely chopped pistachios
1.Melt the chocolate over a double boiler.
2.Prepare two baking trays covered in parchment paper.
3.Once the chocolate has melted dip 3 pretzel rods and place on the tray forming a triangle.
4.Dip 3 more and place on top of the first triangle so it forms a star.
5.Sprinkle with pistachios while the chocolate is still a little soft.
Let the stars set and ready to gift.
A cute way to give these stars or any cookies is too cut a square of craft paper, place the star on top and wrap in a layer of cellophane.
Easy and super sweet.
