DIY Halloween Chocolate Covered Pretzels


I have to admit that I'm not a big fan of Halloween treats.  You know, the kind with fake blood and fingers and spiders. I don't like blood or spiders or dismembered fingers anyway, so I certainly don't want to put fake ones near or into my mouth.  But treats that are orange and black?  I can handle that.


What you need to make your own chocolate covered pretzels:

pretzels
Wilton candy melts (I got mine at Michaels)
sprinkles
parchment paper

Place candy melts in bowls and follow the melting instructions on the back of the packages.  Line rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.  Use two forks to dip each pretzel into the melted chocolate, tapping the forks against the edge of the bowl to drip off excess chocolate.  Place pretzels on parchment paper and add sprinkles immediately.  To add stripes to your pretzels, fill a Ziploc bag with the melted candies, cut a tiny corner off of the bag, and add the stripes immediately after placing the dipped pretzel onto the parchment paper.  Once your baking sheet is full of finished pretzels, place in fridge to allow chocolate to harden all the way. 


P.S.  If you're like me and only eat pretzels with chocolate, try making these M&M Pretzel treats!
