Halloween Pretzel Treats Five Ways
I’m a self-proclaimed Halloween lover and with the last name Coffin, how could I not be? There’s just something special about the chill in the air, the smell of all things pumpkin spice and the magic of wearing a costume.
I’ve been counting down the days until it was “socially acceptable” for me to start posting all things Halloween… Well, I’ve waited as long as humanly possible, so here it goes!
I had so much fun making these cute little pretzel treats with my kids, that I just had to share them right away!
I kept each idea simple enough that you won’t break the budget making them and you can invite your kids to help you create each treat! I figured that’s way more realistic than perfect, detailed treats, right?
Let’s get started! You’ll need a roll of wax paper, a microwaveable bowl and a mixing spoon for all of these treats!
Fill a microwaveable bowl with candy melts and place it in the microwave for 1 minute at 50% power. It’s important not to overheat the candy melts!
Take them out of the microwave and stir and then place them back inside of the microwave for another 30 seconds. Repeat this process until the candy melt is smooth.
If it is too thick you can add shortening or vegetable oil to thin out the candy melt.
Dip the pretzel snaps in the chocolate, gently shake the excess chocolate off and lay it on a piece of wax paper.
Break the ends off of a long pretzel stick and attach them to both sides of the pretzel snap.
Before the candy melt sets, place two candy eyeballs and a red sprinkle for the mouth on the pretzel snap.
Super easy, right?!? My son really loved this one!!

- White Chocolate
- Candy Eyes
Lay the yogurt covered pretzels out on a piece of wax paper. Fill a bottle with a squeezable top with warm white candy melts.
Squeeze the bottle in lines across the pretzels to create the mummy bandages. Place two candy eyeballs on pretzel before the candy melt cools. Allow the mummy to cool completely and then carefully lift it off of the wax paper.

Heat the candy melt following the instructions listed at the top of the post.
Dip the pretzel into the candy melt and gently shake off the excess.
- Pretzel Sticks
- White Chocolate
- Halloween Sprinkles
To create the spider web you will need to start with one intact pretzel stick and four pretzel sticks that have been broken in half. Place the pretzels on the wax paper in the shape of a star.
Use a squeezable bottle to draw a circle in the middle to connect all of the pretzel sticks together. Draw two to three larger circles around the pretzel sticks.
Sprinkle Halloween colored sprinkles around the edges of the spider web.
Allow the spider web to cool completely and gently peel away the wax paper.
This is my favorite treat to make with my kids because its SO easy and kids love to smoosh the melted chocolate!
Unwrap the Hershey’s Kisses and place them squarely on top of the pretzel snaps.
Place the plate in the microwave for 1-2 minutes until the chocolate becomes soft enough to be pressed down.
Place a candy corn on top of each kiss.
Place your cute little pretzel treats in a goodie bag and deliver them to your neighbors!
