This was the fastest activity, so in order to spend a little more time with my munchkins having Halloween fun, we opted to flip our pretzels upside down and make ghosts too.
They totally remind me of the Pac Man ghosts. Right? This was so easy and fun. But, if you did not get the stuff for both, don’t worry, your kids never have to know!
Halloween: Pretzel Pumpkins
- Orange candy melts
- Green M&M's
- Melt your orange candy melts
- Dip pretzels in the melted orange candy.
- Use a fork to lift the covered pretzel out, and tap it slightly on the edge to get the excess chocolate off.
- While chocolate is still wet, stick a green M&M at the top to make the pumpkin "stem"
- Let harden

Melt your Candy Wafer Melts – Orange.
Dip your pretzels in the melted candy. I used my Salton Chocolate Treat Maker to melt my chocolate. Then I lift them out with a fork, and tap it on the edge to remove excess melted candy.
Then add your green M&M’s to make your stem. Put them on wax paper and let them dry, then enjoy!
Follow the same idea for ghosts, only use white candy melts, and chocolate chips.
The book I chose for today’s project was It’s Pumpkin Day, Mouse! From the If You Give A Mouse Series I just love that series. It is fun, and brings back memories from when I was in elementary school. However, this book was really boring for my 7 and 8 year old. I think I would have gone with something a little more in depth.
