A Spooky Halloween Treat

I was recently looking through the Inspired by Charm archives to see if there were areas that needed some new content. When I saw that my section for Halloween snacks was lacking, I remembered these Halloween pretzels that I had seen in a book or magazine a few years ago and knew I needed to give them a try.

When I first saw these Halloween pretzels, I remember how captivated I was by their little faces. Are they spooks? Maybe aliens? Could be ghosts? No one really knows. I think the mystery is what makes them special. Their story is yours to create.

What is certain is that they are a fun, spooky, and unique treat to make your Halloween festivities a bit more special and memorable. 

Let me show you how to make them.

Ingredients:

To make these Halloween pretzels you only need three ingredients. Let me walk you through them. 

  1. yogurt-covered and/or milk chocolate-covered pretzels – For this recipe, I used a mix of yogurt-covered and chocolate-covered pretzels for a little variety. Either works great. You could even do peanut butter-covered pretzels. I actually recommend buying these pretzels to save yourself the trouble of having to dip them.
  2. colored candy melts – I picked mine up at Michaels. They have a huge selection of colors. Keep in mind that you can mix the candy melts to create more colors. Red and yellow make orange, blue and yellow make green, etc. Since you only need a small amount, this can save you from buying every color.
  3. sprinkles – Mostly anything will work here: jimmies, nonpareils, dots, stars, and even mini M&M’s. Again, get creative, have fun, and use what you have.

With your three ingredients on hand, you’re ready to assemble these Halloween pretzels.

How to Assemble:

I’ll walk you through the steps here. The process is fairly straightforward. I’ve also provided a detailed ingredient list and instructions in the printable recipe card below. 

  1. Lay out the pretzels on a piece of wax paper. 
  2. Heat the candy melts according to the package directions. Transfer to a piping bag.

  1. Pipe the candy melts into the upper left and right holes of the pretzel. 
  2. Immediately add sprinkles or candies for the pupils. 
  3. Allow to set completely.

Pack and store in an airtight container.

As you can see, the steps to making these are very basic. It just takes some time and fiddling to get things looking right and not too messy.

Recipe Notes:

When piping the candy melts I recommend doing about 6 at a time and then quickly adding the sprinkles. The goal is to add the sprinkles before the chocolate sets to ensure that they stick. 

This recipe does take a little time and precision especially if you want your eyes to be straight. However, if you don’t mind wonky, this would be a fun snack to create with kids. 

Have fun with it! Use different color candy melts. Create faces with two different colored eyes or pupils. This is one of those recipes where you can let your creativity fly.

Enjoy!
