Cooking time:


Sweet, salty, silly and easy—these mummy pretzels are really all you can ask for in a Halloween treat.  

·       About 25 – 30 mini pretzels or unbroken, small plain chips

·       ¾ cup chocolate chips, use white chocolate chips if available

·       1 teaspoon vegetable oil

·       candy eyeballs or mini m & m’s

Directions for Preparation

  1. Lay the pretzels or plain chips on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  2. Place 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips in a microwave – safe bowl along with 1/2 tsp vegetable oil.
  3. Microwave for 1 minute. Let sit in the microwave for 1 minute. Stir gently, then if not smooth, return to the microwave for 15 – 30 seconds.
  4. Working quickly, dip each pretzel into the bowl of chocolate, gently tapping the edge of the bowl to release extra chocolate.
  5. Lay the covered pretzel down on a piece of wax paper. Place candy eyeballs or mini M& M’s into the top 2 holes in the pretzel. Let cool until solid.
  6. Place the remaining 1/4 cup chocolate chips in a small baggie along with ½ teaspoon oil. Microwave for 45 seconds, or until warm and soft. Move the chocolate around so the oil is mixed in.
  7. Using scissors, snip off a little off the corner of the baggie. It should be a small snip.
  8. Pipe chocolate onto the top of each coated pretzel in lines, criss-crossing the entire “face” going around each eye. Let cool until hard.
  9. Store in the fridge.
