  • Melt the vanilla candy coating according to the instructions on the package.
  • Dip a square pretzel into the melted vanilla candy coating and set it on a piece of parchment paper. Cover the edges with shredded coconut. Press a bite-sized candy bar into the center. Set aside to harden.
  • Dip one edge of two square pretzels in the melted vanilla candy coating. Press together to form a "V" shape (slightly less than 90˚) and place on a piece of parchment paper. Allow the candy coating to harden before moving on.
  • Once the candy coating on the roof has hardened, dip the edge in the melted candy coating and then dip it in the sprinkles.
  • Spread melted candy coating on the edges of the bite-sized candy bar house and attach the pretzel roof.
  • Attach a Starburst Mini for a door and a white pearl sprinkle for the door handle.
