Spooky Pretzels Recipe. Freakishly adorable pretzel rods decorated as Frankenstein and mummies for your upcoming Halloween festivities!
Ok, so Halloween is totally in FULL swing now. Pumpkins everywhere, creepy decorations galore, and tons of creepy treats being made – like these Spooky Pretzels!
These are so fun that they literally made me”eeek!” out loud because of the cuteness overload that I experienced while making them. So not only will these make you go “eeek!,” but also your family, friends, neighbors, coworkers, kids…even pets will love them! No, seriously, I gave some of these to my neighbors and their dog totally stole them off the countertop. That’s how fun they are! 😉
If you haven’t noticed already, Halloween is my all-time FAVORITE holiday. My husband always cringes as he knows October is approaching because that means its time to get the 10 bajillion bins of Halloween goodies down from the attic (which, keep in mind, is still over 100 degrees in Florida). I swear he still loves me 😍
So have you guessed it?! Of course we throw a Halloween party every year. And yes, it’s a lot of work, but I love every second of it.
I’m always looking for cute Halloween fun food to put together for the party, so I was super excited about these little fellas. They most definitely will be making an appearance at our annual Halloween party this year, our 5th annual to be exact. Something else probably making an appearance, our Classic Guacamole, because I mean, why would you not want guacamole at a party?!
Don’t let these intimidate you, I promise that anyone could make them, (yes, even you). You know what? Mine aren’t perfect, and that’s the great part about homemade. And not to mention how kid-friendly these are.
Let’s just face it, these Spooky Pretzels are:
- Super kid-friendly for all the little ghouls and goblins.
- Fun for adults too!
- Great to include in a little goodie bag to give away to co-workers or as party favors.
- Just stinkin’ adorable.
Finally, I wish you all a happy and safe Halloween, we might even have another treat for next week! Wait…I swear I didn’t mean for that to rhyme. Well…maybe a little. Hope you all enjoy!
