  1. Melt the CANDIQUIK according to the package directions.
  2. Pour the melted Vanilla coating into a plastic ziploc bag (or piping bag if you have one)
  3. Snip one corner off of the plastic bag. You want the hole to be somewhat large to get a thicker flow of coating but not too large so you cannot control the flow.
  4. Drizzle the coating back and forth over about 3/4 of each pretzel rod, leaving a small empty space for the eyes.
  5. Draw eyes on with cake writing icing (or a Black Edible Marker from Americolor Gourmet Writer)
