2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
12 large pretzels
Package of mini chocolate cookies with cream filling (such as mini Oreos)
Chocolate licorice cut into pieces for eyebrows
Candy-covered chocolate pieces for eyes
Candy corn for beaks


  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips and stir until smooth.
  2. Dip pretzels in melted chocolate and place on a cooling rack over a sheet of waxed paper to catch drips.
  3. While chocolate is still warm, create the owl faces: Break open 2 chocolate cookies and place them filling-side up for the eyes. Add a chocolate candy piece to each eye. Add licorice pieces for the eyebrows and a candy corn for each beak.
  4. Refrigerate owls for at least 15 minutes to harden chocolate.
