Halloween is coming up quick you guys.  It will be here before we know it.  With the Halloween season comes party invites and lots of school events.

Frankenstein Pretzel Rods are a Spooky Halloween Treat! They are easy to make and are perfect for Halloween Parties and events.

Here’s what you do:

  • Pretzel Rods
  • Black Gel Icing
  • Green Candy Melts
  • Candy Eyeballs
  • Black Licorice Twizzlers

Frankenstein Pretzel Rods are a Spooky Halloween Treat! They are easy to make and are perfect for Halloween Parties and events.

Here’s what you need:
1. Open the bag of Green Candy Melts and melt over a low-medium heat on the stove. Pour melted candy melts into a tall glass.
2. 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.

3. 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 Frankenstein’s neck bolts.
