Ghostly Chocolate Pretzel Rods

Recipe by Bren HaasCourse: TreatCuisine: American


Prep time


Cooking time




  • 1 box salted pretzel rods

  • 16 oz. fine white melting bark

  • edible ink black baking marker / frosting gel

  • wax paper


  • Melt chocolate in a double boiler or on the stove. White Chocolate Candy bark can be used as well.

  • Dip 1 end of a pretzel rod into melted Chocolate to cover pretzel approx. 2″ down

  • Lay chocolate covered pretzels on a wax paper-lined tray

  • Repeat with remaining pretzels until all are covered in chocolate

  • Place a baking tray covered with wax paper to dry.

  • Draw scary ghostly faces on the pretzels candies.

  • Wrap in your favorite pretzel holders and give to family and friends.

  • Allow extra time to let the face on the ghost to dry before wrapping in pretzel holder bag. Store in a cool and dry location for up to 1 week.

I share the simple ingredient list along with what you need to package these up to give as gifts.  The hardest item on the list to find is the black edible marker which is a new addition to my recipe.  You may have to use black food coloring and a toothpick to make the little scary faces.  Allow extra time to put these together because the faces need to dry.

The really fun thing about this recipe is you can use it most anytime of the year. by simply changing color and sprinkles!   This is my favorite treat to make and give to family and friends during the Christmas season.  Last week I saw a gift pack of these premade pretzels at one of my favorite stores.  I can’t help but think how much better homemade Ghostly Chocolate Pretzels taste comparing to premade.

In the Kitchen  Making Ghostly Chocolate Pretzels

It is so much fun inviting friends over to make these.  Don’t leave the kiddos out of the fun – get them involved!  My niece not only loves to eat these but making them (and more great memories) is a must each autumn.   My kids were getting their ‘paws’ messy in the kitchen by the time they could sit up in the baby highchair.  If your little helper is to young to dip the pretzel in chocolate let them go crazy with the sprinkles.   Packaging up the Ghostly Chocolate Pretzel treats is always an easy task once the chocolate and icing has dried completely.
