The Frankenstein's Chocolate Covered Pretzels.
Some of my all time favorite classic horror characters are Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein. Their eternal love was always something I admired. Josh and I even say we are together through all eternity as a nod to Frankie and his sweetheart. I am always looking for fun ways to bring these two back into attention. I mean, they are classics! So I went to work to create some fun and delicious treats that would pay tribute to these love birds.
Personally I think that chocolate covered pretzels might be the greatest combination ever created. Crunchy, sweet and salty! Truly a homerun in your mouth. Even better is when they are adorable! The whole family can actually agree on this. Which is helpful when it comes time for picking dessert.
I made these little cuties and surprised Violet with them. She did her overly dramatic hand to the forehead fake faint when she saw them. I was pretty pleased with myself and gave myself a little "good job mom" pat on the back. They have been a real big hit amongst the family and friends who saw them and I plan on making them for the next Halloween shindig we go to. So here's to you The Frankenstein's! May your love be eternal. <3
WHAT YOU NEED:
- Pretzel rods
- Pretzel sticks
- White chocolate melts
- Green chocolate melts
- Milk chocolate chips
- Red heart sprinkles
- Black fine crushed sprinkles
- Googly eye sprinkles
- Vanilla Frosting
- Piping bag or sandwich bag
HOW TO DO IT:
1. Melt green chocolate and dip your pretzel rods in about halfway.
2. Place on wax paper and quickly add goggly eyes. Break small pieces from your pretzel sticks add attach them to the sides of the head for his neck bolts. Allow to dry.
3. Dip top of Frankie's head into melted milk chocolate and dry on wax paper.
Bride of Frankenstein
1. Melt white chocolate and dip you pretzel rod in over halway. Place on wax paper.
2. Add goggly eye sprinkles and a red heart sprinkle for the mouth.
3. Dip your bride into melted milk chocolate down to the tops of her eyes.
4. Before the milk chocolate cools and hardens sprinkle with black sprinkles. Place back on wax paper and allow it to harden.
5. Put your vanilla frosting in your piping bag and cut it so there is a small opening. Zig zag white highlights onto the bride's beehive hair and again allow time to cool.
And there you have it! The cutest couple award goes to these sweet treats. Bring them to any party or hand out in your kid's class. I found some coffins at Dollar Tree that fit them perfectly! These are sure to be a hit wherever they go! Hope you enjoy :)
