Halloween Pretzel Mummies are the spooky-cutest treats! These white chocolate covered pretzels are dressed up with an extra drizzle to look like mummies. You need just 3 ingredients and about 45 minutes to make these Halloween pretzels. Makes 12 servings.
I’m always in the market for sweet treats I can make with my daughters.
These Halloween pretzels were just what we needed—and a lot of fun to make together!
If you’re looking for a Halloween project to make with your kids, this is one of our favorite treats for the season.
Why I love this recipe:
Not only this Halloween Pretzel Mummy recipe super cute, but it’s also a super tasty spooky treat!
The combination of a flatter, crispy mini pretzel paired with a white chocolate coating and candy eyeballs is just the perfect combination. It also transforms into a little monster with very little effort!
The pretzels have a nice crunch and a good balance of sweet and salty.
They’re not too sweet, and the salt of the pretzels really balances out the sweetness of the white chocolate.
You can make these with kids and make them into a little Halloween project to share for the season. They’d also be so fun to make and share at a Halloween party!

Let’s talk ingredients!
In addition to the tools above, you’re going to need some ingredients to make this recipe, too! Chances are, you might already have some of them in your fridge or pantry. Scroll down to the recipe card for the full measurements and instructions.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Pretzel Crisps—I really liked using these flatter pretzels because they have less negative space and their shape mimics that of a face. You can use a regular pretzel twist, too, if those are what you have on hand.
- White vanilla flavored melting wafers—I like to use the Ghirardelli wafers because their flavor is on point. You could also use candy melts if you have those on hand.
- Candy eyeballs—you can use the classic black and white candy eyes, or you can go for a colored variety! Just make sure you get the smaller version because the larger ones could be too large for these bite-sized pretzels.
Please note that you can make this recipe with pretzel rods, too, though the look of the Mummies will obviously change. You could also add Halloween sprinkles to give them some spooky colors, too!
How to make Halloween Pretzels
Line two large sheet pans with parchment paper or waxed paper. Set aside.
Melt the white chocolate wafers. Do this in the microwave in a heat-safe bowl in 30-second increments until the white chocolate is completely melted.
I like to heat my white chocolate in 30-second bursts until they’re melted. Stir after each round so that the chocolate does not burn. If the white chocolate is still a little thick after it’s all melted, add a tablespoon of vegetable shortening or oil to help thin it out. This will make it easier for dipping.
Dip the pretzels into the melted white chocolate. Use forks to dunk and flip the pretzels until coated.
These don’t need to have a ton of excess chocolate on them. In fact, they’ll set faster if they just have a thin layer of melted chocolate.
Transfer the pretzels to the prepared sheet pan. Let them set for 30 minutes.
Melt extra white chocolate wafers and transfer to a piping bag. (You could also do this in a plastic bag.)
Snip the bag’s tip. Drizzle the white chocolate over the pretzels to create a mummy pattern.
Once the mummy texture has been added, place the candy eyeballs on top. Have fun with it—they don’t need to be perfect!
Let the chocolate set for 30-45 minutes before transferring to an airtight container!
Frequently Asked Questions
These pretzels will last for up to 2 weeks!
That depends on the chocolate coating you’re using. It took about 30-45 minutes for my pretzels to be totally “dry.”
Keep them in an airtight container on the countertop. You could also keep them in a resealable plastic bag.
Yes! You can make these up to a week in advance.
No. These pretzels will keep better if they’re at room temperature because the condensation in the refrigerator will soften the pretzels, and they will not be as crunchy.

Quick tips and tricks for making the best Mummy pretzels
