HOW TO MAKE THESE STAR WARS PARTY FOOD LIGHT SABRES1. Melt the candy coating according to package directions giving special care not to overheat the candy.
If the candy coating is overheated, it will be too thick. You can add 2 teaspoons of vegetable shortening or coconut oil to help thin the candy but do not add any other type of liquid as the candy will seize and harden.
2.Pour candy coating over two-thirds of the pretzel rod and shake gently to remove excess.
If applying sprinkles, do so immediately rotating the pretzel rods to coat all sides.Larger sprinkles work best if placed individually. Place pretzel rod on waxed paper or cooling rack. (Cook’s notes: Waxed paper makes for easier release.) If creating the lightsabers, allow initial candy coating to set completely.
3. Then, transfer melted black candy to a piping bag or freezer bag with the corner snipped. Drizzle over the end where the candy meets the pretzel. Before the pretzel sets, gently pick it up and move to clean wax paper.
4.Press two mini M&Ms into the black candy melts.
5.Let pretzel rods dry completely before packaging or serving.
6.Store in an airtight container at room temperature. Placing in the refrigerator may cause the pretzel to soften.
