Cute and easy Halloween pretzel rod recipes

Amazing what you can do with a simple ol’ pretzel rod, isn’t it? You can make some really fun Halloween theme party food with them! And of course, all of these recipes are irresistibly salty-sweet, even the creepy witches’ fingers. Eat them… if you dare! : )
