Whip up a batch of these Easy Candy Coated Halloween Pretzels faster than you can say boo! You'll be the best mummy on the block!
If you're searching for a super quick and easy Halloween treat for a party or just for fun, I've got one that you can whip up in no time at all. And if you love a snack that's both salty and sweet, these Easy Candy Coated Halloween Pretzels may be exactly what you've been looking for. I posted these fun munchies over at PinkWhen last month, and of course, I just had to share them here!
I may have a slight addiction to candy dipped confections. The kids and I have dipped cookies, candy and fruit, but I think I love the pretzels the best. There's just something immensely satisfying about the mix of salty and sweet. It's like having a crunchy, salty snack and a sweet dessert at the same time.
These little morsels don't last long at all around my house -- they're just too tempting! So far, we've made dipped pretzels for Easter, Christmas and even Valentine's Day, and I thought if would be fun to make some for Halloween.
The kids are having some friends over before they head out to haunt the neighborhood, and I plan on serving some of these for snacks, along with our traditional mummy dogs and graveyard ghosts.
I usually move these to the refrigerator until they're completely dry, but it just depends on how warm your house is. Actually, it works better for me to leave these guys in the fridge. Otherwise, I'd have a hard time keeping away from them!
You can serve the pretzels on their own, or you can use them to make a fun monster snack mix. Just add some Halloween candies, candy corn and maybe even a few plain pretzels if you want.
How to Make Easy Candy Coated Halloween Pretzels
Easy Candy Coated Halloween Pretzels
- Pretzel Twists
- in Candy coating Halloween colors ( we used orange black, white, yellow and green)
- Candy eyeballs and sprinkles for garnish
- Melt the candy according to the directions on the package.
- Use a fork to dip each pretzel into the melted candy, making sure the pretzel is completely covered.
- Allow excess coating to drip off into the bowl, and let dry on wax paper.
- Before the coating dries completely, add the candy eyes or sprinkles, and use a fork to drizzle different colors over the pretzels.
You could even pack some of these candy coated Halloween pretzels in cellophane bags and give them to your friends and neighbors. After all, you're never to old to enjoy a fun treat!
