Annie's Chamorro Kitchen: Paranormal Pretzels
My niece, Chrystina and her son, Damian have so much fun making snacks together.
Damian shared these cute pretzel snacks with his friends at school, but they’d be perfect for a kid’s party or for Halloween (being that they look like aliens or bugs).
Chrystina adapted this recipe from one she found in Parent magazine. Here’s how she and Damian made them.
You’ll need to buy pretzels already covered in yogurt, but you can buy plain pretzels and coat them with white candy
Use candy melts and multi-colored sprinkles for the eyes. Melt the candy melts in the microwave in 30-second intervals then pour into a frosting bag fitted with a small tip to do the eyes. If you don’t have a frosting bag, you can also use a resealable bag, cutting a tiny piece off one corner.
NOTE: You need a helper to be putting the sprinkles on because the candy melts settle real quick!
From Chrystina: “A lot of our little paranormal friends ended up looking like their eyes were gorged out and left empty and bloody — which is ok too. Damian went as fast as he could.”
Have fun making these cute snacks. Chrystina and Damian sure did.
