Introduction: The Scream - Chocolate Pretzel Faces

I always thought that pretzels looked like the face from the famous painting "The Scream" so what would be more perfect for a Halloween snack?

Step 1: Melt White Chocolate

Either use chocolate chips or bars of baking chocolate, it does not matter.

I melted the chocolate in the microwave as it is to me the easiest way. Basically just put the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and place in microwave. Set your microwave on 50% power and cook for 30 seconds. Take out and stir, put back in the microwave oven and repeat. When the chocolate is melted smooth you are done.

Step 2: Dip the Pretzels

Dip each pretzel in the white chocolate making sure you cover it fully. Pull then out with a skewer and lay on a silicon mat. Once done, place the pretzels in the fridge to allow the chocolate to harden.

Step 3: Making Faces

Now melt the dark chocolate using the same instructions as the white. Cut the corner of a zip-lock bag and spoon in warm melted chocolate. Squeeze the dark chocolate into the "eyes" and "mouth" of the pretzels. I was not too careful in this step and some got a bit messy but who cares! these are scary they should not be perfect!

Place them back in the fridge to harden and you are done!

I almost like the bottoms as much as the tops something about the flatness gives it a cool look.

Very nice, I love how you used the shape of the pretzel. I never thought about a face in the pretzel, but now it's all I can see. Not to mention how hard it is to go wrong with chocolate and pretzels.
