It doesn’t take any more ease to celebrate Halloween than with these Dark Chocolate-Covered Pretzel Screams. Talk about simplicity, all you need is a good handful of gluten-free pretzels, melted dark chocolate to dip them into and a batch of homemade vegan googly eyes. Easy as Frankenstein Pie, right?
My favorite is the one in the middle in the photo below. I love how more open his mouth seems. A real screamer. They are delicious too so it’s like a mix of spooky and tasty…A spooktasty treat!
- 20 gluten-free pretzels
- ½ c. dark chocolate, melted
- 40 vegan googly eyes (see link in the first paragraph)
- Dip each pretzel into the melted chocolate. Place two googly eyes in their spot.
- Freeze for 15 minutes or until set.
As a word of warning, make sure that you don’t make these Screams when it’s hotter than Hades in your kitchen. The moment that they come out of the freezer they will immediately melt on the counter (and don’t even get me started about photographing them). Then again, you don’t need to worry about that, you just need to enjoy every bite. Then again again, some of you are already enjoying the cool, brisk weather of fall. To you, I am deeply envious.
