Easy Halloween Pretzel Treats

Halloween! One of our favorite Holidays, most especially for the kids. Because they know it’s a free pass for them to devour all the candies they can eat. The first time that my son Lucas was aware that he gets to eat all kinds of candy from  Trick or Treat, I had a mini panic attack. I was already imagining that it’s going to be a long night putting him to bed. Good thing my husband calmed me down that it’s going to be okay and it turned out okay! I was stressing out over nothing. Actually, my son only ate a couple and he went to bed on schedule. The next day though, he was asking for more candies from his bag. We told him he can only have one for that day and the rest will be reward treats.

Now, with our youngest daughter Olivia. I am more calm, it doesn’t mean she can eat whatever and do whatever she wants. Maybe because, i learned from experience on the first child and I kinda expect on how things will go. When I was a first time parent, I didn’t really know what to expect and that’s what stresses me out. Even up to this day, I still get stressed out  and I don’t think that will ever go away but at least I’m a little better than the first time, but still rough on the edges. A work in progress, for sure.

Now let’s move on…..

Today, I’m sharing to you some easy Halloween Pretzel Treats that you can make together with your three year old kid. Since it Halloween, it doesn’t have to be perfect. That’s the best part with Halloween crafts, when you messed up it’s okay. It’s supposed to be scary or spooky.

Things you need :

Pretzel Rods and Pretzel Twist

Wilton’s Chocolate Candy Melt – Orange, Lime Green, White, Black

Googly Eyes candy Sprinkles

Black candy sprinkles

Almond nuts ( they sell in thin slices)

cookie tray

parchment paper

Instructions:

  1. Line your cookie tray with parchment paper, set it on the side. This is for drying your pretzel candies.
  2. Melt the chocolate in the microwave for every 30 seconds until you get the right consistency.
  3. Dip the pretzel one by one and coat it with the chocolate.
  4. Lay it down on the parchment paper, attached the googly eye candy, sprinkles or whatever decoration you want to put on.
  5. Lay it out for a few minutes until the chocolate dried up and then seal it in a Ziploc to store and maintain freshness.

Easy and a fun thing to do with your kid. Olivia was enjoying it the whole time. I was surprise! She is  usually not patient with crafts. I guess she likes doing this one.
