super simple halloween pretzels....!


yay it's october!!! so let the halloween season officially begin! and these may be one of the simplest treats yet!....pretzels, candy melt, candy for the "little monsters" and pretzels, frosting, and candy for the "pretzel sandwiches"....


somehow i accumulated a bunch of different candy corn flavors....they come in so many now like caramel, candy apple, caramel apple, cherry, chocolate covered, etc! just add some candy melt/wafers (i put in a zip lock bag, microwave until soft, and snip an end of the bag off to pipe) to pretzels (i used square and mini pretzels) along with some eyes (the yellow eyes i got awhile back pre made and others (the white eyes) are just made from candy melt--pipe a small circle, then pipe a smaller black circle, and let harden....add candy corn and eyes before candy hardens and add some fangs or teeth with more white candy melt, and that's it!...get creative!..you could use any number of candies for this...


the "sandwiches" are made from square pretzels and leftover butterscotch buttercream from these cupcakes...(it's so yummy i couldn't let it go to waste)...then dip the sides of the sandwiches in colored sugar or use up some of those sprinkles you keep collecting....i found some neat halloween skulls and spiders last year on sale....


and you get a perfect bite sized mouthful of sweet and salty pretzel snacks....ok maybe these are pretty much just candy, but they are so simple, fun, colorful and all halloween-y!


hope you enjoy these and have a boo-tiful and spooktacular week! (haha, i crack myself up!)

  6. These are adorable, what a great idea and a great way to use up candy corn! It's funny, once halloween is over, no one wants to eat the candy corn anymore!

  7. These look like so much fun! (I like to eat candy corn--no matter what the season! It's my diet breaker.) If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll visit "One Creative Weekend" on OneCreativeMommy.com (open every Fri-Wed) and link up this idea and anything else you’d like to share. There are two categories—one for Halloween and one for everything else.
