  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Shape teaspoons of dough into 36 (1-inch) balls; place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
  • 2
    Bake 9 to 12 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
  • 3
    In small bowl, mix frosting and food color until well blended. Spread about 1 rounded teaspoon frosting between 2 cookies. Add more frosting and cookies, using 18 cookies to make each caterpillar. Repeat with remaining cookies to make 2 caterpillars.
  • 4
    Dip pretzel stick halves in frosting. Attach 4 sticks on each side of caterpillar to resemble legs and 2 sticks on top to resemble antennae. Spread frosting on 2 baking bits; attach to resemble eyes. Spread frosting on 6 baking bits; attach to resemble mouth. Add additional baking bits to resemble spots if desired. Repeat for second caterpillar.

Expert Tips
