Looking for a fun recipe to do with the kids?! Here it is!!! My friend Tara sent this my way and of course I had to try it out at my recent taste testing! The best part of the entire process was that the less perfect the pretzels looked, the scarier they turned out!!! Each one is unique and I dare say, they look a bit spooky!!! It was a TOP PICK at my recent taste testing Halloween Kitchen.
1 bag of pretzels
1 bag white candy melts
2 containers of googley eyes (you can purchase these at JoAnn’s or Michael’s in their cake baking section)
Lay out a sheet of wax paper for your finished dipped pretzels. Melt the candy melts according to package instructions. Dip the pretzels in the candy melts. You can either swipe up or swipe down. You can even try swiping them to the left or right. If you look at my pretzels, you can see which ones were swiped up while they were dipped and which ones were swiped down. Either one will produce good results.
Place the covered pretzels on the wax paper and place two eyes on them. You may need to make sure that the holes, where you will place the eyes, have a good amount of candy melts within them. The holes need to have candy melts otherwise the eyes will just fall through the hole and not adhere.
Let dry and place on a black platter for a spooky look!
