Fun and Delcious Halloween Treats: Pumpkin Pretzels

Sometimes I will see something while I am browsing the aisles and I will get a creative thought across my mind. While at Target and really having no reason to be in the Halloween Aisle and found a bag of pumpkin shaped pretzels. While they would be delicious on their own in a snack bag, I had to add chocolate to the equation. Chocolate and Halloween do go well together right? I also picked up a bag of orange chocolate discs, do you see where I am going with this yet?


When I got home I added a few chocolate discs to a freezer bag and placed it in the microwave for 30 second intervals until they melt completely through. Placing the pumpkin pretzels on wax paper I then filled each one with chocolate. ( just snip the end of the freezer bag)


Working pretty quickly and in batches, decorate the insides of the pumpkin with all sorts of sprinkles and googly eyes. Hey its Halloween anything goes right?

One trick I found is right after filling the pumpkin pretzels with chocolate, tap the cookie sheet to even out the chocolate. It makes for a more uniform and flat surface to work with.

When done, just place the cookie sheet in the fridge for a few minutes until the chocolate hardens.

Simple right? The hardest part is getting the sprinkles in the pretzels, I used a tweezers.

You can serve them up in a bowl at a party.


Better yet, make little party favors by filling a bunch in Halloween Themed cupcake holder and then wrapping with a cellophane bag. A little orange ribbon and you are sure to please your Halloween Party guests.
