  1. Melt candy.

    Melt Light Cocoa, Blue, Yellow, Vibrant Green, Bright White and Red candy separately according to package instructions; keep warm on warming tray. Combine Light Cocoa candy with Red and Blue candy colors to get black color shown. Combine Bright White candy with Orange candy color to get orange color shown. Tint candy black and orange using color combinations provided. Reserve 1 oz. Bright White candy white for later step.

  2. Dip pretzels.

    Using craft knife, cut one loop off 24 pretzels to make legs. Leave 12 pretzels intact for faces. Using candy fork, dip pretzels in Blue, Yellow, Green or Orange candy; tap to remove excess. Transfer to waxed paper-covered cookie pan. There will be two legs and one head needed for each frog. Chill until set, about 5 to 10 minutes.

  3. Decorate pretzels.

    For frog faces, prepare decorating bag with reserved melted Bright White candy; cut small hole in tip. Pipe in top two holes of pretzels to form eyes. Reserve remaining melted white candy for later step.

    Prepare decorating bag with melted black candy; cut small hole in tip. Pipe mouth in remaining hole of frog face. Chill until set, about 5 minutes.

    Prepare decorating bag with melted Red candy; cut small hole in tip. Pipe tongue on each frog mouth. Let set, about 5 minutes.
