Make these quick and easy Halloween pretzel rods to serve your friends and family this Halloween!
I love salty and sweet, so these pretzel rods are right up my alley when it comes to flavor. And did you know, purple is the newest Halloween color? That's right, it's no longer just orange and black. The purple adds a touch of modern style to everything Halloween.
You can make these pretzels in less than 15 minutes, and your friends and family will love them. Here's how...
Halloween Pretzel RodsWhat you need:
- Pretzel rods
- Orange candy melts
- Black candy melts
- White candy melts
- Halloween sprinkles
- Baking sheet
- Parchment paper
- Ziploc bags
Step 1: Line pretzels on a parchment covered baking sheet.
Step 2: Melt the candy melts in separate bowls in the microwave. Use 50% heat and microwave in 30-45 second intervals. Mixing each time.
Step 3: Take a couple scoops of the melted candy melts, in each color, and place them into individual Ziploc baggies. Set aside.
Step 4: Pour the black and white candy melts into a tall mug. Dip the pretzel into the mug(s) and use a spoon to scoop the melted candy over the pretzel rod. Leave a little space at the top of the pretzel with no candy coating. Tap the excess candy off the pretzel and lay onto the parchment lined baking sheet.
Step 5: Cover pretzel rods with different Halloween sprinkles. But leave a few bare so you can zig-zag.
Step 6: To create the zig-zag design, cut a bottom corner off the chocolate filled ziploc baggies.
Step 7: In a back and forth motion, drizzle the colored chocolate over the pretzel rods without the sprinkles. Repeat with each desired color. I love how these look layered!
Step 8: After adding your sprinkles and chocolate zig-zags, chill the pretzel rods until the candy coating sets and is hard.
To a salty and sweet Halloween!!
