Chocolate Crown of Thorns

Today we made these super-duper easy Chocolate Crown of Thorns.  I saw them on a post from Catholic Icing and knew they would be a messy fun project for UNO and DOS.  Evann from Homeschool Goodies also said to add eggs to it to transform it to a bird's nest!

All you need is Baking Chocolate and Pretzels.
I just followed the directions for melting the chocolate.
I lined a baking sheet with wax paper and drew a circle on the back side.
I was thinking the circle would be easy for the kids to "shape" the Crown.
UNO stirring the pretzels and chocolate...
DOS added her at a time...YAWN!!!
TRES looking on with a red star sticker stuck to her upper lip...too cute!
I made this one earlier in the day.
Our crown of thorns

NOTE: Less is more. 
The one Evann made was thinned out a lot better than this one but hey...
It was my first one. 

UNO and DOS ended up eating their bowl of chocolate covered pretzels, while watching an Easter Video...which was ok with me.

I LOVED this idea and look forward to making this one of our Holy Week Traditions.
