Halloween Pretzels made into 3 spooky treats- Pumpkins, Mummies & Aliens. Use chocolate & candy to create these festive Halloween Pretzels.
Halloween Pretzels are a favorite of mine! I love to get creative with each holiday and come up with fun, festive ways to dip pretzels. They’re so easy to make and I love that they usually only require a few ingredients. Get your kids involved and let them help- it makes the process go really fast and it’s such a fun activity. Be sure to watch the video to see just how we made all three of these Halloween Pretzels!
Here are 3 simple ideas for creating chocolate covered pretzels for Halloween:
My favorite chocolate dipping tool is this Wilton Dipping Tool. It makes dipping just about anything in chocolate super easy and I highly recommend it for these pretzels.
HOW DO YOU MELT CHOCOLATE IN THE MICROWAVE?
Melting chocolate in the microwave is easy if you go slowly. Always use a glass or ceramic bowl and chocolate that’s not old. To melt 1 cup of chocolate chips I’d begin with 1 minute in the microwave. After the 1 minute, let chocolate sit for 2-3 minutes. Then, gently stir and see if chocolate begins to melt smooth. If it’s still really solid, add 20 seconds in the microwave, then let it sit again. Often chocolate looks like it’s not melted when it really is, and you don’t know for sure until you gently stir it. If your chocolate melts but it’s too thick to work with, try adding 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil or shortening, then letting it melt and stirring it in.
