These goofy mummy pretzels are sure to be a favorite among any kid that tries them. Not to mention, they are extremely easy to make!

Ingredients:

  • bag of small pretzel twists
  • 16 oz. white chocolate
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • small candy eyes

Directions:

Melt the chocolate in the microwave in intervals of 30 seconds. After each thirty second period, stir the chocolate. Do this until the chocolate is completely melted. (I recommend either finding colored white chocolate wafers or using food coloring to create the fun colors!)

Dip the pretzels in the chocolate, making sure they get completely covered.

Then, lay them to dry on a flat surface covered in foil or wax paper.

After all pretzels have been dipped, use the remaining chocolate (as well as some brown chocolate that you melt in the same manner you did the white) to drizzle on the pretzels to make the mummy “wrappings”.

While the chocolate drizzle is still wet, stick on the candy eyeballs.
