Chocolate Covered Pretzel Ghosts Halloween “Trail Mix” Recipe

halloween, chocolate, candy, trail mix, recipe Who’s excited for Halloween? My husband absolutely loves it and of course my kiddos love dressing up every year. I have to be honest though I really wish I was more crafty when it comes to cooking in the kitchen and making pretty cupcakes and making everything look so pretty during Halloween or any holiday for that matter. Unfortunately I’m not very good at it. I did however throw a “Trail Mix” together this weekend for a quick snack for the kiddos and ended up getting carried away with the raisins lol. Their white chocolate covered pretzels ended up being white ghosts with raisin eyeballs. I thought they came out cute so I thought I share this super easy recipe.

    Those cups look really cute. I am not a big fan of Halloween, but I am, unfortunately a big fan of candy. So this time of year I need to avoid the candy aisle and all of the sales on Halloween candy.
