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 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. These dark chocolate covered pretzels screams 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 homemade googly eyes
- Dip each pretzel into the melted chocolate. Place two googly eyes in their spot.
- Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Freeze for 15 minutes or until set.
And who would have thought that chocolate, gluten free pretzels, and a handful of homemade googly eyes would actually be my most popular recipe. Well, these and my Silly Apple Bites. I guess they were right when they said to keep it simple. Two easy and Halloween-inspired recipes make for some of the most shared stuff over here!
As a word of warning, make sure that you don’t make these dark chocolate Pretzel 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.
