I only made one Abraham Lincoln this a.m. so the ingredients are for one – you’ll have to adjust them accordingly:

  • Pretzel Rod
  • About a dozen White Wilton Chocolate Melts
  • 1 Orange Wilton Chocolate Melt
  • Toothpicks
  • Black gel frosting
  • Oreo Cookies – Get yourself a few, just in case you have casualties
  • Wax Paper on a flat working surface


  • First off, prepare your Oreo Cookies – Twist them apart and get rid of the center (eat it, if you have to:) )
  • One will be cut for the hat – so saw one in half and then carve out the center to get a U shape

  • Now, crush your leftover cookie parts – this will be hair, beard, and the top of the hat – you might want to get another cookie, while you at it. You can never be too prepared when decorating chocolate. It drys fast!
  • Now, melt your white and orange chocolate melts according to the package directions – we’re mixing them together to make a peachy skin tone for Abe

  • Then take a butter knife or something similar and spread most of the chocolate onto the top 1/2 of the pretzel
  • Set that onto the wax paper and get to work immediately

  • Place your U shaped Oreo Cookie about 1&1/2 inches down from the top of the pretzel
  • Sprinkle the crushed Oreo Cookie onto the top half of the hat. All the rest of the Oreo Cookie should be sprinkled below the hat bill and made to look like the picture above. Give Abe a long beard and some hair!

  • Now use toothpicks to dip into the cream colored chocolate and dab a nose onto Abe’s face
  • Use the same toothpick to dab eyes
  • Use the black gel frosting to give Abe big bushy eyebrows and eyeballs
