How to Make Chocolate Covered Pretzels into Monster Halloween Treat

 I found this idea for How to Make Chocolate Covered Pretzels into this Monsters Halloween Treat in an Everyday Food magazine several years ago. It was an advertisement for Snyder’s pretzels and I could not resist. 
I don’t like they gorrey aspect of Halloween but the fun goofy monsters and Candy Corn themes 
I think you have realized my attraction to the salty-sweet combination of chocolate and pretzels. Isn’t everything a little better chocolate covered anyway? 
These could not be simpler and with the candy eyes available everywhere, it is fun for the kids to join in as well.
We love creating Halloween Treats.

Here is the recipe as listed, of course, you don’t need to make the entire batch. I just made about 6 by simply throwing in a bunch of green and purple chocolate discs and pretzels together that my son enjoyed breaking.

I USED Bright GREEN and Purple  CHOCOLATE DISCS…The darker green I made a few years ago and did not like the result. Plus Halloween is about bright colors too.

Plop them onto a tray with parchment paper.

Carefully add the eyes. It does not matter where they fall as it looks spookier if they are not centered.
