Halloween treats

I found one treat that nearly everyone loves...chocolate covered pretzels! So this is what I made this year. 

Presenting...WITCHES FINGERS! 
I dipped the pretzel rods in the green chocolate and added a sliced almond fingernail. I used a toothpick to add the knuckles. They look SO creepy in person!!!

Mummies!!!
I dipped the pretzel rods into white chocolate and then put the chocolate into a baggie and drizzled away. 

Happy Halloween!

(Oh, and HOORAY! I found my camera. It was hidden behind something. Thanks to my dear hubby for finding it!)

  12. I used baker's white chocolate then added green food coloring. The chocolate wouldn't stay liquidy long enough and it wouldn't stick to the pretzels well (I followed the melting directions according to package). Any suggestions? Did I use the wrong type of chocolate?

    1. It might help to use some shortening to thin it out. I was reading about pretzel chocolate dipping on another recipe and that's what they suggested.

    2. I did the same thing! I bought white baker's chocolate and added green food coloring. It was super thick - so duh, I added milk. Yeah, not smart. Oh, it thinned it out....it just wouldn't solidify and the pretzel was visible through the green. It was an epic fail. I thought I'd be able to handle a recipe that was just melting something... sad pandas. @_@ (I'm taking the other unopened bag of pretzel rods and a new jar of pretzel dip from Christmas to the Halloween work party tomorrow, instead - and just not mentioning my earlier intentions.)

  13. Food colors is a water based substance cannot be mixed w chocolate u may want to add some edible baking wax bars to make it stick

    1. Nice, thank you! Also I was looking at youtube videos on how to dip the chocolate.. and they didn't really show how to dip the whole rod, and let it dry without the back getting all messed up? If I lay it flat..? I'm wondering what to do with the rod after dipped in the warmed chocolate to get it to dry evenly all around...

  17. I've made them on twice this season already. Easy, Easy Easy.

  18. I am going to make the witches fingers for a work party. Is it okay to take white chocolate and use food coloring?

    ReplyDelete
  19. These are awesome! Might have to try to recreate!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I used the white almond bark and food coloring and it worked just fine. (I couldn't find the green candy melts locally in my rather small town.)

    Thanks for the inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I tried this and it didn't work the chocolate Was to thick and then would burn if you tried to heat it For more then a min. I even tried the shortening trick still didn't work....

    ReplyDelete

    1. You need to put a smaller pan into a larger one that has water in it ( less than half full!,) like a double boiler, so it can be melted to the right consistency. Also, in most cases , water based food colorings will make the mixture harden, so use the powder or chips.

      Delete
  22. FOR THE GREEN FOOD COLORING YOU HAVE TO USE A GREEN POWDER. I GOT MINE AT OUR LOCAL TRUE VALUE STORE BUT I BET HOBBY LOBBY HAS IT TOO. IF YOU USE LIQUID FOOD COLORING IT HARDENS THE CHOCOLATE.

  24. I would like to hand these out at work. Does anyone know where I could get packaging to fit the pretzels?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Walmart sells Wilton brand candy bags. Usually in the cake decorating section and the pretzel rods fit perfectly in these bags. Usually in groups of three or four.

  26. I used ghirardelli white chocolate melting wafers, added a small (1/2 tsp) amount of coconut oil (refined) and regular green liquid (water based) food coloring. Worked great! Not too thick or thin and tasted delicious. Looked like the pictures!
