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.
