    What a fun treat! They are also so easy to make which is a relief. I feel like a lot of times Halloween Recipes can get really complicated really fast. As a working mother I feel like I never have enough time for anything and with Halloween this weekend I have been looking for some fun ideas for my kids. I work with Better Recipes so I am always reviewing recipes but unfortunately don’t get to cook as often as I would like but this weekend I’m determined to. Thanks for the idea!

    Theses are super cute but I tried with 2 different food safe markers and could not write on the chocolate once it was cooled. I used Wilton candy melts and Wilton markers. So sad as this was my son’s treat for preschool for tomorrow and now I am stuck with some sad looking pretzels as I ended up dying the chocolate and trying to paint faces on with colored chocolate–not as cute…but yours are great, wondering why mine won’t work…

    I attempted to make these last night and the same thing that happend to Tanya happened to me! I used Wilton candy melts and Wilton edible marker. The marker would NOT write on the chocolate once it melted. It was like trying to write on wax. I was so upset! I ended up dipping them again and sprinkling them with halloween sprinkles. :(
