Pumpkin Pretzels

Standard

So easy and so delicious, if you like white chocolate and pretzel that is (but WHO doesn’t??)

As Halloween approaches, we like to get ready by making everything pumpkin.  Pumpkin crafts, pumpkin foods, pumpkin clothes, and craving pumpkins.  So I thought today would be the perfect day for Maddox and I to sit down and make these while Raleigh and Sawyer slept.


First things first, go and gather your supplies.
We used:
Pretzels
Almond White Chocolate Bar (substitute with white choc. chips)
1Tbs Shortening
Food coloring Gel
M&Ms (we used Mini)
Sprinkles- last minute add by Maddox

After you have your supplies ready, now the fun begins.  First you need to melt your white chocolate, you’ll want to add the shortening.  If you leave that out be prepared for grainy or just weird melted chocolate.  Don’t believe me?  Well do it your own way then! I have a nice small crockpot that is perfect size for melting, so I choose to use that.  But you can melt it however you’d like, or what is easiest for you.


I gave the job of separating out the GREEN M&Ms to Maddox.  It was a wonderful job for his tiny fingers while I got the chocolate done.

When Maddox was done we got all of the supplies in a “construction” line.  Maddox dipped one pretzel then decided he didn’t want his fingers all messy, so he asked to place stems and add (LOTS) of sprinkles to them..

FINISHED pretzels:

So yummy, cute, and FUN!!
Some we covered fully, and others not as much which left us with “Pumpkin Faces”
