Oktoberfest Pretzel Snack
- Add the goat cheese and the honey to a bowl and mix with a fork until it is somewhat soft. Then use a mixer or blender to mix until smooth.
- Place half of the pretzels on parchment or wax paper.
- Fill the cheese into a piping bag, using a medium sized round tip. Then pipe the cheese onto the pretzels. Put a second pretzel on top of each cheese-pretzel, then let it chill in the fridge for about 1 hour.
- Melt the chocolate, then dip each pretzel halfway into the chocolate. Put back into the fridge for about 20 minutes or until the chocolate has set.
