Halloween Pretzel Fun!

Here are some fun ideas for Halloween treats using pretzels and chocolate...a perfect combination!I have made a few different treats using only pretzles,melting chocolate,and caramel.These are perfect for a fall afternoon project with your children,but use caution when melting the chocolate & caramel..that is for adults only!The kids will have fun dipping and decorating,and everyone will enjoy eating!
    For the pretzels,just melt chocolate,dip your favorite shaped pretzels in,then place on a parchment lined baking sheet and decorate as desired.I have used assorted sprinkles,but mini chocolate chips,mini m&ms,or chopped nuts all work well.
  For the caramel-chocolate pretzels,I melted a block of caramel(available at http://www.kingarthurflour.com/ ),and coated half of the pretzel rod with it.I let that set for about 5 minutes,then dipped them into melted chocolate.Again,you can decorate as desired.Yum!
   Lastly,I just poured some good old melted chocolate into some Halloween molds.Easy,easy,easy.Let them set in your freezer for 5 minutes,unmold and if desired ,place in lollipop bags and with a pretty ribbon as a finishing touch.
   Now who wouldn't want to receive a basket full of these goodies?Have fun!
