Toddler Recipes: Festive Pretzels for Halloween




halloween pretzels DESCRIPTION

Make a pretzel centerpiece, goody bag treat or a fun snack with Halloween sprinkles.


INGREDIENTS

  • 1 package pretzel rods

  • White Frosting
  • Food Coloring or Gels (we recommend the gels)
  • Various Sprinkles
  • MATERIALS

  • Small microwaveable dish for frosting
  • Mini Whisk or Spoon
  • Pastry Brush

  • Cookie Tray or plastic container to work over when sprinkling.
  • Apron or Old t-shirt
  • STEPS

    1. Put about 3-5 tablespoons of frosting into small microwaveable dish.
    2. Microwave about ten seconds and stir. It should be warm not hot and easy to stir.
    3. Add a couple drops of food color or gel. Gel is easier to control color.

    4. Stir until color is mixed well. Work with only one color at a time.

    5. Using silicone pastry brush, paint pretzel with frosting.

    6. halloween sprinkles

    7. Let excess drip and then shake on sprinkle decoration of choice.
    8. Let dry on waxed or parchment paper.

    9. Arrange in clear vase, cup or jar.

    TIPS AND SUGGESTIONS

  • To arrange as a bouquet, select small vase or glass. Add Halloween candies to the vase like candy corn, black or orange jelly bellies, m and m Halloween candies. These will help hold it in place and make it easier to arrange like a bouquet with some at different heights for visual interest.
  • OTHER IDEAS

    Festive Pretzels with White or Dark Chocolate

    We wanted to experiment making colored pretzels, so used frosting in this activity which worked well. We also purchased a Halloween jar of mixed sprinkles so it was easier to sprinkle onto the pretzel than to roll it in the sprinkles. But if you prefer using chocolate see our other Festive Pretzels here.
