Ghostly White Chocolate Covered Pretzels

Disclosure: Post contains affiliate links.

My kids love Halloween and they’re obsessed with all the treats that come with it. While they’re running around the neighborhood knocking on strangers’ doors (ideally with dad or grandma if they’re young), you can be hanging out in the warmth while whipping up something extra fun for dessert that night.

These cute, Ghostly White Chocolate Covered Pretzels are an especially ghoulishly good time if you’re having friends over after trick-or-treating.

Easy, peasy Halloween

Aside from being good, these Ghostly White Chocolate Covered Pretzels are easy too! Since Halloween is almost always during the middle of the week and on a school/work night, easy treats are a must for me during this scary-fun celebration.

These literally take minutes and will satisfy any sweet tooth you might have from seeing the abundance of candy your children bring home. Melt the chocolate, dip the pretzels and you’re pretty much there. Check out the video below to see exactly how I did it.

The chocolate I used

I used Ghirardelli Chocolate melting wafers for this recipe. This is not a sponsored post, but I’m telling you this because I honestly think that the brand of chocolate makes or breaks any chocolate covered recipes. You can use whatever brand you like but know that the Ghiradelli white chocolate takes it over the top. Maybe because it’s vanilla flavored chocolate and I’m a sucker for vanilla.

Take your haunts with you

Since we live on the farm now, we won’t be having people over this year because no one walks down the road our house is on to trick-or-treat.  And no one would want to since it’s pitch black and cars have a tendency to drive 60 mph. However, we are going to our friends’ and I’m planning to take these along.

The Ghostly White Chocolate Covered Pretzels travel really well once they dry, and they keep too. We kept the ones we made for a week in an airtight container.

  • 10 oz meltable chocolate
  • 2-3 cups pretzels
  • Candy eyes


  • Get your cookie sheet ready by adding a layer or parchment paper. 
  • Add your meltable chocolate to a microwave safe bowl and microwave on 30 second increments. It took about 1 minute to melt my chocolate but do not do 1 minute all at once or you will burn the edges. 
  • Once melty, give it a stir to make sure everything is melted correctly. 
  • Wait about 2-3 minutes and then start dipping your pretzels. Use a fork to help get the pretzels covered and remove them from the bowl or you will get your fingers full of chocolate. 
  • Put down a row or two or pretzels on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper and then add your candy eyes. If you have a lot of chocolate in the ghost "mouth" you can use a toothpick to remove some of it. 
  • Wait about 10-20 minutes for the chocolate to harden. 
  • Carefully break off any stringy pieces that make the ghost look strange.  
  • Serve!

  1. This is the cutest recipe ever! I wish we did halloween in Australia like the Americans do! Seriously so cool! I feel like these little monsters look a little bit like E.T.!

  2. OMG these are so freaking adorable. My daughter had a Monster High party and I used pretzels, white chocolate, and mini marshmallows to make skeleton bones. They were a hit just like I’m sure these will be.

  3. These are such a great idea. I love that they are so simple to make too. I may just need to make these with my daughters. They’re going to love it.

  4. What a creative idea. I’m sure the kids would repeatedly pick it. I will get your ghostly white chocolate covered pretzel recipe.

  5. I’m terrible and don’t do fun little treats like this for holidays but these are THE cutest! And they look super easy to make. Love how it looks like a little face. I would have never thought of doing something like that.

  6. Hello! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make
    your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this issue.
