I've been making versions of these pretzels for years. They are always a hit at bake sales. Here are 2 hints that may help you when making them. Purchase those ice cube trays that make ice cubes that are long and skinny. The cubes will fit down the neck of water/drink bottles. The pretzels fit perfect in there and will dry/harden perfectly in there. If the pretzels are a little short, crumble up paper and put inside the ice cube tube. If selling them, use the same tray but cover in a brown bag or paper and then tie a pretty ribbon around it. I find the brown bag works easiest, cheapest, and looks great w/the ribbon. 2. To wrap the pretzels I'll just buy that clear,stiff plastic wrapping paper at the $ stores. (The kind you can use to wrap baskets, etc.) I either seal them w/clear tape or I'll cut the pieces long and tie the ends w/curling ribbon. These are great year round, for all holidays, but our favorite is during During Halloween, we decorate them by sprinkling fall-Halloween theme cupcake/cake sprinkles on them, wrap them and call them Witches Wands.
