My oldest (4) is in soccer right now, and today was our turn to bring a small after-game snack + drink. Since he truly is obsessed with all things Halloween right now (and has been talking about it for the past 3 months, i swear), we decided to make a “spooky” treat to share with his teammates. I let him scroll through my Halloween board on Pinterest, and he chose this pin. White chocolate mummy pretzels (reminds me of these ones we did last year). I was so happy because I knew these were fast, cheap, and doable. Something he could help with too. Win win win.
S U P P L I E S:
• pretzel rods
• white almond bark/melting chocolate (plain white chocolate chips work fine too)
• vegetable oil
• wax paper
• small handful of chocolate chips (for the eyes)
So it’s not rocket science. And I feel silly even writing out steps, but here’s what I did:
STEP 1: broke off some chunks of Almond Bark, put them in a bowl, and melted in the microwave
STEP 2: used a spoon to spread the white chocolate all over the pretzel rod (this is the step my kids helped a lot with)
STEP 3: placed dipped pretzel rod on wax paper to dry (doesn’t take long!)
STEP 4: repeat steps 2 and 3 until you are out of chocolate or pretzels, or have your desired amount
STEP 5: warmed up some more Almond Bark, added in a small amount of vegetable oil (like a teaspoon-add more if needed. be careful you don’t overdo it or the chocolate won’t dry!), and mixed it up. i’ve found this makes drizzling the chocolate so much easier and smoother.
STEP 6: drizzle that white chocolate mixture over your pretzels, creating the desired “wrapped mummy” look, let dry
STEP 7: in a separate bowl, warm up the small handful of chocolate chips
STEP 8: using a toothpick, create chocolate mummy eyes on your “mummys”, let dry
STEP 9: share and enjoy!
We wrapped ours in plastic wrap and tied them with an orange bow to hand out after the game. My son was way excited when his teammates came over to see what we were giving them, and kept saying: “It’s a spoooooky treat!”
