Halloween Pumpkin Chocolate Pretzel Mold
Each piece is 1º" x 8" x ?"
This mold makes approximately 12 pieces per pound of chocolate.
Boo! Scare your friends and have fun with this pumpkin pretzel mold. Fits a standard pretzel rod. Consider using white chocolate and 1 drop of red and 3 drops of yellow candy coloring to make a light color orange for your Jack O' Lantern! Holds approximately 4 ounces of chocolate.
Make this Halloween pumpkin pretzel sucker:
Melt Guittard milk chocolate in 30-second intervals, stirring every 30 seconds and set aside.
To color this pumpkin's face, melt Guittard white chocolate in 30 second intervals, stirring in between. Set 2 bowls with small amounts of the white chocolate aside. Add yellow candy coloring to one of the bowls. Just 3 drops or so to get a light yellow color. To the other bowl add 3 drops of yellow and one drop of red candy coloring. Place the yellow chocolate into one candy painting bottle, and the orange into another candy painting bottle (or you can try the candy paint brush!)
Carefully paint in the pumpkin mold's eyes, nose and mouth with the yellow chocolate. Carefully paint in the stem of the Jack O' Lantern with the orange chocolate. Let the yellow and orange chocolate cool in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
Place the pretzel rod into the mold, over the colored face. Fill in the rest of the mold cavity, while also covering the yellow and orange chocolate and the pretzel, with the milk chocolate.
Tap the mold on the counter to make sure there are no bubbles on the front of the mold, and to help the chocolate reach the edge of the mold. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes.
The kids loved these unique treats instead of your usual boring cupcake!

A Note About Pumpkins
By Cheryl Sandberg
My husband and I have tried several times to grow some gigantic pumpkins. We looked all over the internet for ideas. We used a combination of ideas. This video helped as well. Its crazy. Have you ever seen the pictures of these huge 1000 pound pumpkins? Wouldn't that be fun around Halloween! One time we grew one big enough to put one of our kids inside and take a picture. You would think they'd look back and appreciate the work involved years later but instead they think its a gross thing to do to a toddler. haha! We always have enjoyed the challenge. Have you ever grown a gigantic pumpkin? Hop onto our Facebook fan page and shoot us a picture! We'd love to see it!
