Dip the Pretzels: Melt the white candy according to the package instructions. Dip the pretzel twists into the melted candy, allowing the excess to drip off. Place the coated pretzels on the waxed paper and let them dry. Once dry, arrange the pretzels into pairs to form the wings.


Dip the Nutter Butter Cookies: Dip each Nutter Butter cookie into the melted candy, ensuring it’s fully coated. Allow any excess candy to drip back into the bowl. Place the coated cookie on the pretzel wings immediately, and gently press it down.
