Step 2: Remove melted chocolate from double boiler and allow to cool slightly. Dip pretzel rod into melted chocolate and tap excess off on the side of the bowl. Lay chocolate-dipped pretzels onto a wax-paper-lined baking sheet to set.

Step 3: Spoon excess chocolate into a Ziploc bag and snip one corner to create a piping tool. Drizzle chocolate onto each rod in zigzag formations.

Step 4: Repeat steps 1 and 2 with dark chocolate chips. Spoon melted chocolate into a separate Ziploc bag, snip a small piece from the corner, then squeeze tiny dots onto the rods for eyes. Allow mummies to set, then refrigerate or enjoy immediately!

Summer Sips: Bey Blueberry Lemonade Cocktail Recipe

❤️ By Hannah Blu

Who doesn’t love the tart, sugary-sweet, golden elixir that is lemonade? The ultimate warm weather refreshment earned some major street cred when Beyoncé released her groundbreaking sixth studio album last month. As a result, we think it’s safe to say that lemonade is gonna be on everyone’s lips this summer…literally!

As hot summer days approach, we wanted to remix our favorite citrus beverage with a fresh, fruity twist and a splash of 21-and-over fun. You know what they say… When life hands you lemons, make our Bey Blueberry Lemonade Cocktail and blast Queen Bey’s new album on repeat!
