This is a Halloween snack for little fingers to make. Amy and my crazy little boys (all younger than 5) were running around like little tornadoes at my house last week. Desperate for a little more peace, I whipped out the ingredients to Halloween Pretzel Bites and let these little boys go to town. Worked like a charm. And I felt like the world’s greatest Mom/Auntie to boot! They were so cute and intense putting these little treats together. And so proud of themselves! Isn’t it cute how little people love to create in the kitchen? Especially festive treats! I loved finding something that was at toddler level so they could really do it all by themselves. I think these Halloween Pretzel Bites are perfect for a Family Home Evening treat to jump start the Halloween Season. (These are a variation of Easy Pretzel Turtles)

Small Pretzels (Snyder’s Snaps work best)
1 bag Hershey’s Hugs
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place small pretzels on a cookie sheet (line with silpat or parchment paper for easy clean up). Top each pretzel with a Hershey’s Hug candy. Place in the oven for 3-4 minutes. The Hugs will look shiny but will still hold their shape. Remove from oven and push a Candy Corn on top of each one. Let firm up for 30 minutes (longer if kitchen is warm).
