Owls don’t always come out at night. Who dares to eat these Haunted Hooting Owl pretzels? Though they look especially spooky, these chocolate-dipped pretzels are a hoot to make. Children will have a blast decorating these adorable owl pretzels. And after they’ve decorated them, they will have just as much fun eating them! Halloween is going to be a real hoot when you bring these easy treats to the party!

These are a simple project the kids can help put together. Simply dip large pretzels in melted confectioner’s coating and place on wax paper. As the coating sets, start to decorate the owls. I know kids can be picky, so substitute whatever candy you like for this project. These little guys may be one of my favorite Halloween treats I’ve made this year. Serve on a tray or wrap in small cellophane baggies like I did and give as gifts. Your friends and family will think these are a hoot!
