Frankenstein Pretzel Rods – Scaring Up a Yummy Halloween!
Pretzel rods are easy to design and turn into fun Halloween treats that are tasty, too. You get the salty side from the pretzels and sweetness from the candy melts. For this recipe, we turned them into seasonal, spooky Frankenstein faces.
Using candy melts, black gel icing, candy eyeballs, and Twizzlers, you can whip these up in no time. Add these to your Halloween activities to do with the kids. Depending on their age, there are several motor skills that can be developed by making these.
Supplies You’ll Need
Open the bag of pretzel rods and dip each pretzel rod into the melted green candy melts. Let the excess drip off into the cup and then place the pretzel rod onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Allow the pretzels a minute or two to dry and then move the pretzels to a second cookie sheet lined with wax paper. This insures that your pretzel won’t dry in a puddle of candy melts.
While you wait for your pretzels to dry, open the bag of black licorice Twizzlers. Cut one Twizzler in half and then cut the half into small pieces. These will be the neck bolts.
After the pretzels have dried, dip a toothpick into the melted candy melts and dab a bit onto the Twizzlers. Place a piece on each side of his neck. Do the same with the candy eyeballs. Allow candy melts to dry.
Use the black gel icing to draw a spooky mouth and a stitch onto Frankenstein.
Use the black gel icing to draw hair onto Frankenstein.
