Below are the ingredients you will need.  The hardest one on the list to find is the black edible marker.  You may have to use black food coloring and a toothpick to make the little scary faces.


1 box salted pretzel rods

16 oz fine white baking chocolate

An edible ink black baking marker

Wax paper

white bark and pretzels


  1. Melt chocolate in a double boiler or on the stove. White Chocolate Candy bark can be used as well.
  2. Dip 1 end of a pretzel rod into melted Chocolate to cover pretzel approx. 2″ down
  3. Lay chocolate covered pretzels on a wax paper-lined tray
  4. Repeat with remaining pretzels until all are covered in chocolate
  5. Place a baking tray covered with wax paper to dry.
  6. Draw scary ghostly faces on the pretzels candies.
  7. Wrap in your favorite pretzel holders and give to family and friends.

Be sure to allow the frosting gel to harden.  Do not make the dot too thick or it may not dry with this Betty Crocker Writing Gel.

After the faces are dry put them in a pretzel gift bag to give to friends and family.
