Halloween is next week! I still have to buy candy to hand out, but I am trying to wait until the absolute last minute to do that. The last thing I need around here is more temptation. My 8 year olds costume is now 100% complete, so he is ready. We just need him to get over this cold. Gotta love the change in seasons, and everyone getting sick. He had perfect timing with this cold too. A 4 day weekend, and his grandparents from Wisconsin are visiting. Nothing like really sharing the love

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).

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!
