Party Tips from Lora – Baratta’s Director of CateringEasy Halloween Party Treats

Looking for an easy and delicious treat to make for the Halloween season? Try making Creepy Witch Pretzel Fingers!


1 Bag of Pretzel Rods

1 and 1/2 cups of White Chocolate Chips

Green Food Coloring

Slivered Almonds


Heat the white chocolate chips in microwaveable cup for 20-30 seconds until melted. Next add a few drops of green food coloring to the melted chocolate until you are happy with the color. Once the color is mixed begin dipping one end of the pretzel rods into the melted chocolate. Carefully lay the dipped rods on wax paper. Before the chocolate dries place a slivered almond on the end of the rod to add the fingernail. You now have a fun Halloween treat that only takes minutes to make!
