Wow! I can’t believe we are less than a week away from Halloween already! Bunbun has decided to be Frankenstein this year. I’m not quite sure where this idea came from, but I find it cute. I found a minion costume which was much better than the usual ones so I was trying to convince her to wear it. She decided on Frankenstein in the end though! Her class did an activity for Halloween called, “Guess Who I am?”. The kids drew a self portrait of themselves and described what their favorite things are from Halloween. Such as favorite activity, candy and/or treat. Then they write what they will be for Halloween and the others guess who is who. Bunbun’s was a dead giveaway for me when I noticed it on the bulletin board. Her self portrait was a girl with pigtails, colored green, with stitches on her face. I knew it was Frankenstein!!! Or as she labeled it; “Franken Girl”.
Bunbun worked very hard on her masterpiece and it was just perfect! Over the weekend, I made her favorite snack. She has always loved white chocolate covered pretzels and I knew these would be a nice surprise with the added Halloween Sprinkles. She was thrilled when she saw them and we ate them all in less than 24 hours. They’re so easy to make and are the perfect sweet and salty treat you are looking for this Halloween.
How about making them for your Halloween party, a classroom treat, or for trick-or-treaters? Everyone is sure to love these!
- 1 bag, sourdough pretzels
- 2 bags, white chocolate chips
- Halloween sprinkles of choice (I used these)
- Wax paper sheet, for cooling
- Place sprinkles in a wide, shallow bowl.
- Melt one bag of white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl, wide enough for your pretzels for 60 seconds.
- Remove and stir. If chocolate is not smooth, heat for 30 seconds and stir again until smooth.
- Dip the front of your pretzel in the white chocolate and allow excess to drip off for a second or two and immediately dip pretzel 2-3 times into the sprinkles.
- Place on wax paper to set.
Use your second bag of chocolate when needed and be sure to begin the heating process in a new bowl. Added new chocolate to the old will make your melted chocolate lumpy when you stir.
Are you having a Halloween party this year? What tricks or treats will you be serving?
