Halloween Pretzel Bites

When it comes to the perfect snack, salty and sweet is a winning combo. When it comes to Halloween snacks, what’s better than piling a bunch of candy on top of a pretzel and declaring calories don’t count?  Halloween has always been the kickoff of “bulking season” so might as well make it count!

In this video, I’m going to show you how to make these delicious Halloween Pretzel Bites that will make you forget all about ripping off your kids trick or treat bag on Beggars Night. (Except the Reese Cups…and a fun-sized Snickers…don’t forget the Twix.)

Halloween Pretzel Bites
Halloween Pretzel Bites
Prep Time:
5 minutes
Cook Time:
5 minutes
Total Time:
10 minutes
  • 1 bag Brach's Autumn Mix
  • Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses
  • Regular Hershey Kisses
  • Hershey Hugs
  • 1 bag mini pretzels
  1. Preheat your oven to 250 degrees.
  2. Pour out the autumn mix and pick out the pumpkins. Cut them in half so they don’t stick up as high.
  3. Separate your autumn mix into their own piles of Indian corn, pumpkin tops and regular candy corn.
  4. Place your pretzels on a lined baking sheet.
  5. Place the Hershey kisses on the middle of the pretzel so when they melt they melt evenly into the gaps. Alternate flavors on each row of pretzels until they’re all topped.
  6. Place in the oven and after 2 minutes begin watching the kisses for an intense shine which will let you know they are ready. (Due to the oil content in different kisses, some may melt before others.)
  7. Pull the pretzels out of the oven and place the autumn mix on the melted kisses. (I used the pumpkin tops on the pumpkin spice, the regular candy corn on the hugs and the Indian corn on the regular kisses.)
  8. Use the autumn mix to slightly move the melty kisses into the gaps then place in the freezer for 5 minutes to harden the kisses into place.

I'm a long time cook/baker that makes food centric recipe videos to help the novice cook or welcome a seasoned cook that wants to focus on the food. I'm passionate about both Christmas and cooking. Once my baking gene gets activated in September, I want to bake all the things. Grab a cup of hot cocoa and come on into my kitchen!


  1. What an awesome idea! I’m not the biggest fan of candy corn, so I’m thinking of maybe topping with a caramel, or heck why not an M&M for even more chocolate! I love the look of these, they look like they took a lot more time than they did, which IMO is the sign of a successful dessert!

    1. You can use just about anything you like on the top which makes them awesome for any holiday/occasion! I agree, if you can look like you spent a lot of time but didn’t…even better! πŸ˜‰

  2. Unfortunately we don’t have some of those American products here in England. However we love your idea so much we’re going to try and recreate it with British equivalents x #DreamTeam
