October is here! This year we decided that we wanted to several cocktail and snack pairings based off of horror movies. Since we did The Black Eyed Stickman: A Blair Witch Inspired Cocktail already, we figured we’d do a snack to pair with it. Thus, we present to you Witch Sticks! These chocolate peanut butter pretzels are the perfect combo of salty and sweet!
This recipe isn’t hard to make but it is time consuming. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time to put these together. You can use any variation of melt-able chocolate to create Witch Stick. However, the peanut butter and dark chocolate create a look closer to the stickmen figures in The Blair Witch Project and Blair Witch.
- 35 pretzel sticks (the small ones, not the large rods)
- 12 oz bag of melt-able dark chocolate candy wafers (we used Make 'n Mold)
- Melted peanut butter for drizzle (We used leftover chips but you can use regular peanut butter melted in a bowl by microwave for about 30 seconds)
- Melt chocolate wafers per package instructions.
- Line a baking sheet with wax paper.
- Break 5 of the pretzels in half.
- Dip pretzels individually in chocolate. Shake off excess. (You can touch up where you held the pretzel once on the wax paper.
- Start by creating a wide set X with the chocolate dipped pretzels on the wax paper.
- Take 1/2 pretzel and place in the top part of the X (this is the head). Make sure that the chocolate connects so when dry they will connected.
- Finish with a pretzel laid horizontally across the top 2 points of the X.
- Allow to sit for at least 15 minutes.
- Drizzle with peanut butter.
- Allow to set.
This recipe can be increased as needed and one bag of melt-able chocolate will allow for more than 10 Witch Sticks. For reference, each Witch Stick Stickman is 3.5 pretzel sticks.
