Oreos
Wilton (white) candy melts
Orange food coloring
green frosting
pretzel sticks

Instructions
Melt a bag of Wilton (white) candy melts in the microwave. Just a minute will do it. Add a few drops of orange food coloring while stirring until you reach your desired shade (took me 4 drops, your results may vary.) Pipe a blog of green frosting at the top and then draw the green frosting down a bit to look like a leaf. Place 1/4 of a pretzel stick into the green frosting.
