Spooktacular Halloween Treat: Easy Pretzel Goblins

3 years ago


Courtesy Wondermint Kids 

This is a quick & easy Halloween treat that can be made by preschoolers, older kids or adults with just three ingredients and little time. Also makes for a great buffet decoration for your home or classroom Halloween party.


Candy melts or white chocolate chips
Black cake decorating pen or icing tube
Pretzel rods (regular, whole wheat or gluten-free)



Melt candy melts or chips according to directions on package.

Swirl a pretzel rod in melted mixture, covering at least one third to half of the pretzel.

Once white coating is dry (you can place them in the fridge to speed up the process), use the decorating pen or gel to paint on eyes and a mouth for your little goblin.





TIP: To store decorated pretzel rods, fill a Halloween jar or cauldron with uncooked rice and place rods in rice. See a short HOW-TO VIDEO.


RESOURCES: Candy Dips by Wilton bought at Vons. We also tested this recipe with white Ghirardelli chips. Gluten-free pretzels available at most Whole Foods. Decorating Pens available at Amazon, Sur La Table, Surfas.
