Well, you could over-melt the chocolate but I’m going to trust that you won’t. Because the Ghiradelli stuff is expensive and you don’t want to waste any of that goodness.

I know it’s weird that I included chopsticks, but using a chopstick is the only way I make Mini Ghost Pretzels. A simple chopstick makes coating and handling these a breeze, plus gives you a nice open-mouth effect for the ghost. They’re so darn cute it’s scary!

Author:
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 20 pretzels
Ingredients
  • 20 mini pretzel twists
  • 1 cup Ghiradelli White Melting Wafers
  • 40 Wilton Candy Eyeballs
Tools You Need:
  • a CHOPSTICK
Instructions
  1. Melt wafers according to package directions. Thread the chopstick through the bottom hole on the pretzel. Dip the pretzel into the melted coating and coat completely. Tap the chopstick on the side of the bowl to remove excess coating. Lay coated pretzel on wax paper and place two candy eyeballs on each of the tops holes on the pretzel. Allow to harden, then remove from wax paper and place in an airtight container. Will store for up to 3 days I know. We haven't had any last longer than that.

It doesn’t take long at all to make these Mini Ghost Pretzels. You could easily make a larger batch too! The Ghiradelli White Melting Wafers harden quickly and I’ve had the best luck with this brand. I’ve used the cheaper brands, but I always end up going back to Ghiradelli. Spend the extra money because it’s easier to work with and it just tastes better!
