Have I already told you that my fabulous daughter-in-law is a kindergarten teacher? Well, she is, and she has twenty lucky little five and six year olds who are in her class. I made some fun little treats that I am sending off for her to give the kiddos at their Halloween party.
They are so easy to make, and they will keep for three weeks or more, although I have never had them stick around longer than a day or two when I make them for us at home, because they are so yummy.
(It's that sweet-with-the-salty thing.)
All you do is melt some white candy melts in the microwave and dip your pretzel sticks in.
Plop a pair of candy googly eyes on the warm gooey-melty stuff, and let them set up on parchment or wax paper on a cookie sheet while you watch an inning of the Cubs -Dodgers playoff game.
Melt a single black candy melt in a cup in the microwave, and using a toothpick, put a little black oval below those googly eyes.
Watch another inning of the baseball game, and they're done.
Easy as that.
