How to Make Vampire Halloween Pretzels?

Step Two: Dip Pretzels

Using a skewer, dip the pretzels into the melted candy melts, then place them on parchment paper or freezer paper with the shiny side up.

Step Three: Add Candy Eyes

Before the chocolate sets, place two candy eyes on each pretzel to create the vampire’s eyes.

Step Four: Attach Candy Fangs

Add two pieces of candy corn for each vampire fang. You may need to trim the top of the candy corn to fit the size of the pretzels.

Step Five: Adjust Candy Corn

If using larger pretzels, you may not need to trim the candy corn pieces.

Step Six: Let Set and Serve

Allow your Vampire Halloween pretzels to set on the baking sheet before serving. Enjoy your spooky treat!
