Print Recipe

If you're looking for a fun delicious treat to make this Halloween, then these Monster Pretzels are for you! They're sweet, salty, crunchy and oh-so-cute!

They're so easy to make you can enlist some help from your kids. They'll love watching these little monsters come to life before their eyes!

We made ours to look like little Frankenstein monsters, but you can choose to make your monsters look however you like. Feel free to switch up the candy melt colors and use your imagination when it comes to sprinkles and icing. The fun part about this little treat is that anything goes!


If you can't find square pretzels you can make your monsters using regular pretzels. Just dip them in colored candy melts and attach some candy eyes and you'll end up with something that looks like this.

Try a slightly different decorating technique and drizzle melted candy melts on your pretzel. You'll end up with a little furry looking monster that looks something like these adorable treats:

See below for the full list of ingredients and directions for how to make our monster pretzels.
