What a wonderful idea! This striked another idea to me while reading this recipe. What I did is to chop a 2 finger Kit-Kat bar into about 8 equal sized pieces and top each piece with a semi-sweet chocolate piece. Then, I stuck two small toothpicks into the sides of each Kit-kat piece. It looked very cute and I called these little darlings as 'Chocolate Hat Butterflies'! If I could get pretzels and caramels easily here, I would love to try this recipe as given, but unfortunately, as both these things are really difficult to get here, I had to change the ingredients, but used the same idea. Worked well, I can tell, because there was a competition at my house today as to see which kid could eat the maximum butterflies! They had a ball!! LOL. I had to keep making more, you know, because they were soooooooooooo quick at eating them! Thank you for this fun recipe!

I made a couple of these today for my 2 year old and he thought it was so fun to eat a butterfuly! The caramel was tough to work with and the pretzels kept breaking when I'd attempt to stick them in the caramel, but they were yummy and fun! I didn't have any stick pretzels, so I just used broken twists.

I made these today for my preschool class and they were a hit! Everyone loved them. I used 1 caramel square and two mini pretzel twists and one pretzel stick split in half. The caramel was a little tough to work with, but other than that, these were a breeze. Thank you so much!
