Ghost Pretzels


Today is the last day of the Bake Sale over at Country Cleaver.  Please go check out all the goodies for sale.  My Peanut Butter Bars are there!  I know you want me to send them to you :)

The week of Halloween is here!  These are a fun quick treat for the kids, or the adults (my husband may have eaten his fair share).  If you are helping out with a Halloween party at school, these would be something really easy the kids could do.  I used an edible marker to make the eyes, but you could use one of those tubes of decorative icing, or even just melted chocolate.

I was running low on the chocolate, so I did a few “mummies” as well.  I had a few googly candy eyes by Wilton left, so this was a fun way to use them up.  When browsing for idea on Pinterest, I had seen ghost and mummie pretzels done using pretzel rods.  I thought these looked more “realistic”, but use what you have or what you like!
