Ghost Pretzels

Looking for some EASY Halloween fun? These ghost pretzel faces take just a few ingredients, but create lots of laughs. As you put the candy eyes on, you'll be amazed at just how different each expression will be. My kids and I get the giggles and end up naming each of the faces before we gobble them up!


Ghost Pretzels

Makes 3 dozen

1 bag of your favorite gluten-free pretzels (we love Savor Street)

1 bag Wilton Candy Melts, white

1 package candy eyeballs (you can find them here on Amazon or in your local craft store)

In a glass bowl, melt the candy melts according to package directions. Dip each pretzel, one by one, into the melted candy. Use a chopstick through the biggest hole in the pretzel for the mouth to keep it clear as you let extra drip off. Place on parchment paper. Immediately put candy eyeballs in the two smallest holes on the pretzel (preferably filled in with the candy melt). Allow to cool and set.


Step-by-step tutorial:

Gather your ingredients. You will need a bag of your favorite gluten free pretzels, a bag of white Candy Melts, and a package of candy eyeballs. We are really loving Savor Street Grain Free pretzels right now. They are crunchy, salty, and have an awesome flavor. You can get the Candy Melts at Michaels or your local craft store.

Candy eyeballs are fun for many different food crafts. You can find them at Michaels as well, or just order them on Amazon.

Pour the entire package of Candy Melts into a large glass measuring cup.

Microwave according to package directions. I like to use tongue depressors when I melt chocolate or candy melts in the microwave. It's a great stirrer that can go in the microwave and not get hot. Be careful to not heat too much. It will change the consistency and won't be easy to dip into.

One by one, dip the pretzels in the melted candy. Using a chopstick, poke the pretzel through the biggest hole to keep it clear (for the mouth).

Let the excess drip off.

Immediately push the eyeballs into the two smaller holes. This is the fun part. Every face will look different and the expressions you create are hilarious.

Let the pretzels sit until completely set. Then you can bag them as treat bags, or just eat them!

You will have fun with your kiddos making these ghost faces! Have your kids name them according to their expressions and enjoy the laughs!
