Pretzel Ghosts!

Pretzel Ghosts!

I just love creative Halloween treats! These are white chocolate coated mini pretzels with mini chocolate chips for the eyes! I saw a similar idea as this one but it was for pretzel pumpkins! Just use orange colored melting chocolate and use a green M & M candy, at the top, for a stem. See that recipe here. My hubby saw the pumpkin version and told me to make ghosts instead! So that's how this idea came about!

My kids are 24 and 21 years old but they still loved this creation! And these tastes so good...salty/sweet and crunchy!

Pretzel Ghosts!
Pretzel Ghosts

 10 oz.white chocolate chips
 a palm full of mini dark chocolate chips, for the eyes
 1 bag mini salted pretzels
1 Tbls. vegetable shortening - a must, to thin out the chocolate. Butter or oil do not work!

Melt white chocolate in the microwave according to package directions, but add the shortening to the chips, before melting, to thin out the chocolate. This is a must!
Stir often.
Dip pretzels into the melted chocolate making sure the eye holes stay full of chocolate, but you can tap near the mouth to let the chocolate fall through to make the opening.
Place on a wax paper lined serving platter.
Add the mini chocolate chips for the eyes while the white chocolate is still soft.
Place in fridge to let the chocolate harden.
When chocolate has set, serve and enjoy!
