Melt the White Chocolate

  1. Pour the white chocolate chips or candy melts into a microwave-safe bowl.
  2. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring between each interval, until the chocolate is fully melted and smooth.

Coat the Pretzel Rods

  1. Dip each pretzel rod into the melted white chocolate, ensuring an even coating.
  2. Allow any excess chocolate to drip off, and place the coated pretzel rod on parchment paper.

Create the Ghostly Shape

  1. While the white chocolate is still wet, use a spoon or spatula to shape the chocolate into a ghostly figure. The bottom of the pretzel rod will be the ghost’s body, and the top will be the head.
  2. Work quickly before the chocolate sets to achieve the desired ghost shape.
