Halloween Pretzel Treats with Snyder’s of Hanover + Sweeties Giveaway (EXP)

Check out these fun Halloween Pretzel Treats! There is something about holiday’s that gets me into the festive treats mood. Halloween is no different. This year we made some spooky creations with Snyder’s of Hanover Pretzels! These were fun to make and yummy to eat and the whole pitched in! :D

  • Squeeze White Icing into a bowl and microwave on 5-10 second intervals, stirring in between, until smooth and melty (two 5 second intervals worked perfect for us)
  • Twirl top half of Pretzel Rods in Icing (We used a spoon to drizzle it on but I think a tall glass would work better to dunk the pretzel rods in…)
  • Stand in a cup, not touching each other, and place in refrigerator to harden (I laid them on parchment paper on a cookie sheet)
  • Draw on faces with Black Writer Icing
  • Enjoy!


*We placed these on top of cupcakes but you could put these atop pretzel rods as well!
