Halloween Treats!--Melinda

So I actually made these last year, but I was looking for pictures of things to post here, since it's been awhile, and saw these and thought it was timely (I've been using that word alot lately). The instructions were out of a Parenting magazine, but I don't know if it's posted. Here's what I remember:

Place white melties (or white chocolate) in a double boiler (I make a make shift double boiler by putting a bowl on top of a small pot of boiling water) or melt in microwave (stirring often), add a couple drops of green food coloring (I used the Crayola Neon colors green I think). Coat one end of pretzel with chocolate mixture, then roll one side in desired "hair" (coconut flakes-you can color that too, stirring in food coloring with the flakes, but I'm the only one who loves coconut, so we used chocolate sprinkles). Then put a hersey Kiss at the top ( make sure that there is enough white chocolate on top so it will stick!). Set on a wax paper or parchment lined cookie sheet and draw on a face!

Put em up as decoration, I filled the cup with beans to hold the pretzels up...although if you have little ones, you will probably end up with a bunch of pretzel stumps because they will snitch them and only eat the tops off :-)
