Ghostly Sprinkled Pretzel Rods


Recently Michael Lee West of Rattlebridge Farm, sent some ingredients for the Mystery Ingredient Club.  Knowing that I'd like to make some treats for my grandchildren, I used the wonderful sprinkles, shown below.  It's still warm in Texas, and I set my table up outdoors.  The leaf plate is from Wal Mart, several years ago, and the mug is from Kohl's.   My homespun fabric came in handy for a table covering and the "Autumn" blocks that my sweet sister sent me add some Fall decor.

    
  Aren't these sprinkles fun?  This is my kind of lab work!  Thanks Michael Lee for sending these fun ingredients for our Fall challenge at Foodie Friday!!



I melted some Wilton Candy Melts in the microwave, according to the package directions, coated the tops of the pretzel rods and sprinkled immediately.  The ghost peeps, courtesy of Target, were attached with a gob of melted chocolate.  Set the pretzel on some wax paper to dry.  I think the kids will love them! 


                                       Don't the treats look cute in my teapot from Ross?



                   I packaged the treats up in some pretzel rod bags, using a coupon to Michael's.  Be sure to check out all the fun ideas at Foodie Friday.

  2. Love this, Kitty! I'm certain it would taste good because the combination of ingredients you chose all happen to be favorites around here. What I really love the most is the creativity and the way you packaged them.

  12. Kitty, these are adorable. I was limited with time because I was at my sister's this week to be with my mom. I had originally planned to do pretzel rods and caramel apples along with my decorated moon pies, but I hadn't thought of adding those cute ghosts. What a darling idea. I'll add that one to my memory bank.
    Your grands are going to love these treats. '-)

  24. How FUN to add the peeps, Kitty...I am so glad you mentioned where you found them. Last year, I looked & looked for them & never did find any.
    We love those pretzel rods but I have to let the grandkidlets eat them OUTSIDE...they are too messy for my white carpet! LOL

  27. Hi Kitty,

    I meant to leave you a comment yesterday when I saw this post, but I got busy and then forgot. :( As usual, I love your table; it looks so fall-ish. That pumpkin teapot is darling; I'd love to have one of those. The ghost pretzels are a great idea! Did you see them in a magazine or on Pinterest, or are they your own, original idea? I'll be pinning this to my Pinterest board for sure. :-D My favorite sprinkles are the ones shaped like bones -- too cute!!

    Thanks for sharing, Kitty, and I hope you have a nice weekend. It's supposed to rain here next week; how about where you are?

    Special hugs to you,

    Denise at Forest Manor

  31. Well hello Dear Kitty! I thought I needed to go blogging, it has been some time!!
    First thing I noticed in this post was the "creepy sprinkles lab" is that too cute! I love miniture things and bottles so I may have to search for those. Chocolate and pretzels go so well together don't they? It's the sweet and salty.

    I pray you are doing good. I so think of you and have made you a part of my precious time with the Lord in the mornings.

    Sweet blessings to you, Debbie
