Instructions

  • Unpackage all the Halloween pretzels and set them aside.
  • Place the dark chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and melt in 30 second intervals, stir between each interval, until the chocolate is melted.
  • Place the bat pretzels in the chocolate one at a time, making sure both sides of the pretzel are coated. Remove the pretzel from the chocolate with a fork and tap the fork on the side of the bowl to remove the excess chocolate.

  • Transfer the covered pretzels to a baking sheet pan lined with wax paper or parchment paper. Place two candy eyes on the top of the bat, then allow the chocolate to cool and set. You can put your baking sheet in the refrigerator to speed up this process.

  • Combine the two different pretzels in a bowl and serve. I like to give each child their own small bowl that they can fill with their own pretzels since hot hands can melt the chocolate.
