My kids will be the first to tell you that once I get into the holiday season I start obsessing about things I can do, usually food-related. This post contains Affiliate links.

 

Ideas For Halloween Treats: Easy Eye Ball Pretzels

Back in 2009, I was seated at dinner with my kids and EyeBall Suckers from the Dollar Store were staring at me. My crazy mind started turning as I was thinking about how I could transform these Easy Christmas Candy Treats into an eyeball.

Halloween treats don’t need to be fancy to be fun and these Haloween Pretzels are just that.  You can put them together in less than 30 minutes and its best to get the kids involved too.

How can kids help make Halloween Treats

The kids can easily place the chocolate discs onto the square-shaped pretzels. Place the tray of pretzels into a 250-degree oven for a few minutes, only until the discs melt slightly.

Back in 2009: We used M& M’s for the eyeball.

Then I added an eye color eyeball- ‘the M facing down’ into the chocolate. Using my cookie frosting that dries quickly you can add the veins and pupil.

One of my first blog posts I blogged about chocolate covered pretzels. Well, come Halloween time my friends expect a little more than just chocolate. I make double dipped pretzels or “Magic Wands”. I simply dip the pretzels first in creamy peanut butter or melted caramel and this year I had some Nutella on Hand.
 

Cover the pretzel as you would with chocolate about 3/4 of the way. Place in the fridge to cool slightly.

Then dip them as normal into chocolate or white chocolate. I microwave the chocolate because the kids want to help but if you use a double boiler you will get a smoother consistency and overall product.

Add sprinkles if desired and place back into the Fridge. Place them upright in a low vase or glass as a centerpiece or place two of these in a Pretzel cellophane bag for great teachers treat. I am wondering what is this year favorite!!
