DIY Chocolate Pretzel Owl Tutorial from BHG. I would use white chocolate candy melts – the chocolate hardens really quickly. From BHG:
Dip large soft pretzels in melted white candy coating. Layer sandwich cookies, white candies, and chocolate chips for wide-open eyes. Use leftover candy coating to attach bits of black licorice for eyebrows. Dust with black sugar, add a black jelly bean nose, and use black licorice candies to make feet.
