Dip some pretzel rods in colored chocolate and turn them into monsters this Halloween!
Halloween is quickly approaching! At yet another playdate with my nephews, I took the opportunity to come up with a fun snack for the kids to fit the season. I was eyeing (pun intended) these Wilton Candy Eyeballs and made some monster pretzel rods!

This is pretty simple to do. Just raid your cabinets for melting chocolates and sprinkles and get creative! As you can see, I have quite an assortment of sprinkles, jimmies or whatever you call these candied treats in my collection. Tip: Store containers upside down so you can see what’s inside when raiding through your drawer!
I had left over blue and yellow melting chocolate from Brielle’s birthday party. Good old color theory taught me that blue and yellow made green, which was perfect for these monsters!
Tip: pour a small splash of vegetable oil and put in the microwave on the defrost setting in 20 second increments until it was well mixed and ready for dipping.
After dipping the end of each pretzel rod in the green chocolate, I got to work mixing and matching my sprinkle collection to make some funny monster characters. Overall, I think these monster pretzel rods came out really cute and the kids thought they were yummy!
