Remember those in-class Halloween parties you had growing up? Everyone was in costume, there were decorations, games, and crafts, and most importantly, Pinterest-worthy homemade treats created by your classmates' moms. Yup, those were the days. I frequently remember being given chocolate-covered pretzels during those events. Coated in colorful melting candy and funky sprinkles, they just screamed 'Halloween Party.' Obviously, they were everyone's favorite.

So if you're feeling nostalgic, gather some friends and whip up these pretzels for dessert, put on the Thirteen Nights of Halloween, and feel like you're a kid again

    Separate colored candy melts into bowls. Microwave each separately in increments of 30 to 50 seconds. Be sure to watch, as the candy can burn. Whisk each until you have a melted mixture.
