Easy Halloween Desserts – Creative Ideas for Halloween

This chocolate pretzel recipe doubles as a great Halloween dessert and as DIY Halloween props.  It definitely gives a new meaning to “finger food”.  These chocolate dipped pretzels are SUPER easy and quick to make.

The materials you will need are:

  • One bag of pretzel rods
  • Melting candy or chocolate
  • One bag of sliced almonds
  • Waxed paper
  • Cookie Sheet
  • Glass Measuring cup
  • Vegetable oil (optional)

Step One: Line a cookie sheet with wax paper or parchment paper.

Step Two: Follow the candy/melting instructions on the bag.  I like to melt the candy in a glass measuring cup in the microwave at defrost setting in thirty second increments. Use a spooky color like green or blue to make it look like monster fingers.

Step Three: When candy/chocolate is melted, consider adding vegetable oil to thin out the candy.  Add a little at a time until you reach the desired thickness.  The vegetable oil will not alter the taste.

Step Four: Break the pretzel rods in half and dip the broken side into your mixture.  Carefully lay them in a neat row onto the lined cookie sheet.

Step Five: Gently lay a sliced almond sliver onto the edge of the dipped pretzel to make it look like a finger nail.

Step Six: Refrigerate until you are ready to serve!

This finger food will be a favorite at your next Halloween party!
