  • Pretzel rods
  • Halloween Nonpareils Sprinkles

1) Dip pretzels

Melt white and orange Candy Melts candy in containers, separately, according to package directions. Dip pretzels about 5 in. deep into melted white or orange candy. Tap lightly to smooth and remove excess candy. Place on waxed paper-covered cookie sheet.

2) Decorate pretzels

For sprinkled design, immediately sprinkle pretzel with nonpareils. Chill all dipped pretzels until firm, about 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer remaining orange candy to disposable decorating bag.

3) Drizzle pretzels

Melt black Candy Melts candy in disposable decorating bag according to package directions. When ready to decorate, use scissors to cut small point off of disposable decorating bags. Use melted black candy and reserved orange candy to drizzle over pretzels. Chill until firm, about 3 to 5 minutes.
