My kids love pretzels. Pretzels by themselves, pretzels and peanut butter, pretzels and Nutella and especially chocolate/candy coated pretzels.

This simple recipe brings the candy coated pretzel to the next level, and makes them even more fun for fall or Halloween.

With or without the Jack o Lantern face, they are adorable!

24 Mini Pretzels
1 cup Orange Candy Melting Chips
