Hello PinkWhen readers! It’s Dee from Meatloaf and Melodrama, and I am super excited that fall is finally here — yea! It’s my absolute favorite season, and I am thrilled to be back again this month sharing some fun Halloween Pretzel Treats with all of you today. We usually host a small Halloween party for our kids and their friends, so I’ve been trying to think of quick and easy finger foods to serve. I don’t usually go all out, but since it’s a party, I want to do more than open a bag of chips. And truthfully, I just love making treats!
I love making candy coated pretzels, and I usually do this for holidays and parties, especially when we’re hosting a bunch of kids. There’s just something about the mix of salty and sweet that makes these extra popular with just about everyone. And these treats go very fast! They’re also very easy to make, which is a good thing because I always end up making a ton. Not only do I have to feed the guests, but I also have to have some for the younger kids. And of course, I usually end up nibbling on a few myself!
Since these are for a Halloween party, I purchased a bunch of candy melts in colors to fit the occasion. I used Wilton, but you can use any brand.
So I ended up with green, white, yellow, orange and even black, although we used this mostly as an accent color. I also purchased some little candy eyeballs, and of course, a bunch of pretzels!
The process is super easy, but you’ll definitely need a bunch of bowls to make these Halloween pretzel treats. Just melt the candy according to the directions on the packages, and use a fork to dip the pretzels into the candy coating. It’s still warm here, so the coating stays melted for a long time, but if it starts to get too thick, just pop the bowls back in the microwave until the candy softens up again.
I like to place the coated pretzels on wax paper until the candy coating is set. Then, I go back and use a fork to drizzle other colors over the pretzels. And then, I added an eyeball to the center of a few pretzels. Spooky!
Halloween Pretzel Treats
I made up a bowl of just pretzels, and then I filled another bowl with some fall candies and plain pretzels thrown into the mix — kind of like Monster Munch!
I’m pretty sure that the guest will enjoy these Halloween pretzel treats. I know we sure did! And even if you’re not hosting a party, these are still fun to make for your own family or even your friends and neighbors.
Oh, but be careful. Once you start snacking on these, it’s hard to stop!
Happy Fall, Y’all!
